Captain Necaise has a wife and two daughters.

The Professional Standards Unit is a part of the Sheriff’s Administrative Division and operates under the supervision and direction of the Sheriff and his Chief Deputy. The unit is responsible for conducting Internal Administrative Investigations, Applicant Background Development, and Department Staff Inspections.

Internal Administrative Investigations are a vital part of retaining a high quality staff and assist in assuring that staff members follow established department policy, rules and procedures. Applicant Development is the means by which the Sheriff’s Office conducts thorough background investigations prior to employment, a process critical in maintaining a professional workforce and significantly reducing costly turnover. Staff Inspections assure that divisions within the department are adhering to operating procedures as well as properly maintaining issued equipment.

Allegations of Deputy and civilian employee misconduct are investigated by the Professional Standards Unit and the findings reported directly to the Sheriff and his Chief Deputy. In addition, the Professional Standards Unit reviews and conducts follow-up investigations in regards to employee commendations and/or citizens’ complaints, both of which are available as a means of providing the Sheriff with information about employee conduct observed by the public.

The forms with which to make an employee commendation or file a citizen complaint can be downloaded by selecting the links below. These forms are forwarded to the Sheriff who then assigns the commendation/complaint to a Supervisor or the Professional Standards Unit for follow-up.
