Will I Have to Testify if I Make a Complaint?

A complainant normally does not have to testify in any formal hearing. During the investigation, you, along with all witnesses, will be interviewed concerning the incident. It is essential to any investigation to ask all pertinent questions and obtain factual information. Employees of the St. Helena Police Department have the right to appeal any discipline recommended as the result of a personnel complaint investigation. In some cases, there may be an Administrative Review Hearing; there is a possibility you may have to testify at such hearing.
