How do I file a complaint about an officer or other employee of the department?

We expect all of our personnel to be courteous, fair, and professional. Occasionally however, you may feel that an officer or dispatcher has not handled a situation to your satisfaction. Sometimes issues can be resolved by speaking with a supervisor who might address the issue by explaining department protocols or general law enforcement procedures. If the situation is more serious, you may file a complaint in person, over the phone, or anonymously. The complaint can be investigated more thoroughly if you provide detailed information. You should ask to speak with a supervisor to file the complaint. If you come in person, you will be given a receipt that you have filed a complaint. If the complaint is against a supervisor, you may contact the chief directly. If the allegations are serious, an internal investigation may be ordered. Complaints that are less serious may be handled directly be a supervisor. You will be notified in writing of the outcome of the complaint. A complaint form is available here. Spanish version is here.
