Citizen Complaint Form

You have the right to make a complaint against a deputy for any improper law enforcement conduct. California law requires this agency to have a procedure to investigate complaints. You have a right to a written description of this procedure. This agency may find after investigation that there is not enough evidence to warrant action on your complaint; even if that is the case, you have the right to make the complaint and have it investigated if you believe an employee behaved improperly. Citizen complaints and any reports or findings relating to complaints must be retained by this agency for at least five years.

The complaint process is designed to deal with each case factually and fairly. Citizens who file complaints are treated respectfully and the accusations against the employee are taken seriously. All complaints are investigated thoroughly and all findings are based upon the impartial evidence gained during the investigation.

You may complete this process using the below online form.
