Professional Standards Division (PSD)
PSD has responsibility for the oversight of personnel records, evaluations, and the investigation of citizen and internal complaints.
The Professional Standards Division (PSD) provides a variety of services to the Police Department. Staffed by a Personnel Officer, a Training Coordinator, several Master Reserve Officers, a Police Support Specialist and a part-time Management Assistant, PSD is supervised by a Sergeant and Lieutenant.
PSD responsibilities include the recruitment, pre-employment testing, background investigation and hiring of sworn and civilian personnel and the initial/ongoing training of all department personnel in compliance with POST (Peace Officer Standards and Training) and CALEA requirements.
It is also PSD’s responsibility to maintain the integrity of our “family” atmosphere by hiring high-caliber professional employees who will continue our tradition of meeting the expectations of the Tustin community we serve.
We conducted over 4,700 hours of training for our personnel to make sure we remain ever ready and able to respond to any call-for-service.
In addition, PSD has responsibility for the oversight of personnel records, evaluations, and the investigation of citizen and internal complaints.
