What do I do if I'm advised that I will be interviewed by the agency, BPD or IG in an Investigatory Interview?

The Do's and Don'ts:

(1) DO CONTACT THE UNION IMMEDIATELY - NEVER GO IT ALONE.  Always have your representative with you during any of these discussions.

(2) DO TELL THE TRUTH, but do not elaborate.  Stick to the facts.

(3) DO NOT EVER UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCE SIGN AN AFFIDAVIT.  They will tell you this is your one and only chance to tell your side of the story.  This is not correct.  If necessary, you get an oral/written reply (with our assistance), step 1 and 2 grievance levels, and finally arbitration to give your side of the story.
