Professional Compliance (Disciplinary) Process
The Professional Compliance Section is responsible for investigating allegations of misconduct by officers, training school instructors, and Commission-certified criminal justice training schools for possible disciplinary or denial of certification action by the Commission, and ensures that due-process is observed throughout Commission proceedings.
Any officer who fails to comply with the requirements of Section 943.13 (4) or (7), F.S., by engaging in conduct that constitutes a felony or a serious misdemeanor involving perjury or false statement, or is not of “good moral character,” as defined in Rule 11B-27.0011, F.A.C., is subject to disciplinary action.
Due to variances in the “use of force” policy by local agencies, to determine if an incident constitutes a violation of the moral character standard, and to ensure standardization and consistency, the Commission’s “Recommended Use of Force and Levels of Resistance Matrix”, is used to review excess use of force circumstances.
