The mission of the Office of Employee Relations (OER) is to provide the Department's managers and supervisors a resource they can rely on whenever an employer/employee relations matter arises. The commitment includes providing accurate, consistent, and timely information regarding contract interpretation and application, grievance and complaint handling, policies, and interpretation of the Dills Act.
The Commissioner's philosophy of fostering positive employer/employee relations has been a significant element to our success as an organization. The Department's positive working relationships with state labor organizations have been the model by which other state, federal, and local law enforcement agencies strive to emulate. One of the keys to our continued success as an organization will be to maintain open lines of communication with our employees and the organizations that represent them.
