nternal Affairs Investigative Section (IAIS)
The IAIS of the Hunterdon County Prosecutor's Office is charged with the responsibility to conduct all internal investigations within the prosecutor's office. These investigations might include complaints against detectives, legal staff or support staff of this office. Investigations may be administrative or criminal in nature.
The IAIS also oversees all internal affairs investigations from each of the county's 14 municipal police departments and sheriff's department. Additionally, the unit works cooperatively with local internal affairs officers in cases where serious allegations of improper conduct are alleged against local police. The Internal Affairs Investigation Section also conducts independent investigations countywide.
In conjunction with the Hunterdon County Fatal Accident Collision Team (FACT), the IAIS reviews all police pursuits which result in injuries to vehicle operators or bystanders.
When requested, the IAIS may also conduct or assist other Local, State or Federal law enforcement agencies with investigations involving corruption or official misconduct.
The IAIS is comprised of one full-time detective who works directly for the chief of county detectives. In addition to internal affairs matters, the detective is also tasked with conducting investigations involving discrimination, sexual harassment, and hostile environments in the workplace.
Any person who feels he/she was the subject of improper conduct or action should contact a supervisor or the Internal Affairs Officer of the local law enforcement agency where the conduct is alleged to have occurred.
