What To Do If You Have A Complaint About A Police Officer
We take any matter regarding our personnel seriously.

The complaint will be investigated by the Internal Affairs or it will be forwarded to the appropriate Supervisor for investigation.
All complaints of officer misconduct shall be accepted from any persons who wish to file a complaint regardless of the hour or day of the week.

In the event you wish to file a complaint with the Internal Affairs, we encourage you to do so as soon possible.
