Hello,

I just wanted to clarify one item. In #2 of my request, I asked about complaints by "peer" officers. Some departments call this an "internal complaint". Is it true that there have been zero internal complaints in the Antioch CA PD annually for the past ten years?

Respectfully,
Alex Cartwright
