In the interest of transparency and openness in government, Sheriff Bob Gualtieri announced that beginning Thursday, June 13, 2013 all closed Internal Affairs Investigation summaries will be available to the public on the Pinellas County Sheriff’s Office website at www.pcsoweb.com.
Through this same page, the public will be able to gain access to statistical data on Sheriff’s Office administrative investigations as well as command level investigations dating back to 2011.
The dispositions were posted live to the Sheriff’s Office website on June 13, 2013. The postings are closed case summaries which date back to March 2013.
To get to the dispositions -from the Sheriff’s Office “Home” page scroll over “Administration”, then scroll down to the “Internal Affairs” drop down menu and click on “Closed IA Cases.”
Each memo contains a summary of the violation and the final disposition of the investigation. The dispositions are in order by the date they were posted to the site. More recent postings will stack to the top. The oldest posting for this site is a disposition dated March 6, 2013.
“We want to make the results of our Internal Affairs cases more readily and easily available to the citizens of Pinellas County,” Sheriff Gualtieri said about his decision to post the disposition summaries. “This further reflects the commitment we have on keeping Pinellas County citizens well informed about our Internal Affairs process, and how complaints from the public are taken seriously.”
The postings include cases closed with various levels of progressive discipline through termination; as well as cases in which members have been exonerated.
