Professional Standards

The Office of Professional Standards is headed by Lt. Washington and supports the mission statement and core values of the Newnan Police Department and is responsible for conducting internal affairs investigations,  background investigations, and maintaining certification records and standards.

Internal Affairs is responsible for investigating inquiries into all complaints and allegations made against sworn and civilian members of the Newnan Police Department. The purpose is to ensure the integrity of the Newnan Police Department.   Every complaint is investigated objectively and thoroughly.

Background investigations are completed to ensure that the integrity and ethical reputation of the Newnan Police Department is maintained.  A thorough background investigation of a police applicant is completed during this process.

In 2015 the Newnan Police Department earned the status of becoming a State Certified Agency. Certification is a progressive and time-proven way of helping law enforcement agencies calculate and improve overall performances. The foundation of certification lies in the promulgation of standards containing a clear statement of personal objectives. Certification status represents a significant professional achievement.

The Office of Professional Standards consists of one Lieutenant and one Sergeant.
