How long does it take for OPS to complete an investigation?

The time it takes for an investigation to be completed depends on several aspects, including but not limited to: the number and complexity of the complaints filed; the existence and size of case backlogs; staffing; DA holds and other procedural gaps in investigation, and; the timetable in which documents and other evidentiary requests are met by external sources. Thus, sometimes an investigation can be done quickly, in a matter of a few weeks. Some investigations take longer.
