How Does The Pobar Act Treat Adverse Entries Into An Officer's Personnel File?

Officers have the right to receive notice of adverse comments entered into their personnel file and have 30 days to write a rebuttal. The officer must be given the opportunity to sign the adverse document indicating that her or she is aware of it. If the officer refuses to sign, that fact is noted on the document and signed or initialed by that officer. The important thing here is notice and opportunity to appropriately respond. A public agency does not have to comply if it gives the officer greater protections, such as an administrative appeal hearing.
