If I as a citizen have a complaint against an officer and/or employee what would i need to do?
If you wish to make a complaint against an officer and/or employee you can contact us by phone, mail or in person. All complaints will be heard and evaluated. If you wish to make a complaint in person and speak to a supervisor, you will be referred to the most available supervisor (SGT.) or Officer In-Charge (O.I.C.). If there is not a Sgt. or O.I.C. on duty your complaint will be referred to the Lieutenant. The cooperation of the complainant is important and desired but it is not mandatory. All complainants will be contacted formally to follow-up on their concerns. We will make every effort to resolve our citizen complaints within 30 days of filing.
This agency will offer our citizens an option of having their complaint involving allegations of misconduct by a police employee to be mediated rather than investigated in the normal manner. The Police Department's Internal Affairs Unit (I.A.U.) will designate which specific complaints can be offered to be resolved through mediation.
