The vast majority of the law enforcement officers in this country perform their very difficult jobs with respect for their communities and in compliance with the law. Even so, there are incidents in which this is not the case. This page outlines police misconduct and explains how you can file a complaint if you believe that your rights have been violated.
The Complaint will be reviewed for viability (only) and will be entered onto the corresponding officers' Brady List profile in as little as 72 hours.
When a complaint is sent for investigation, it is assigned to one of the staff investigators. The investigator interviews the complainant, subject officer, and any witnesses the complainant identifies, in addition to attempting to locate and interview any other police or non-police witnesses who may be able to provide relevant information. The investigator also collects and reviews other evidence, including documents, hospital records, materials from other sources, the scene of the incident, and any other relevant information. When the investigation is complete, the investigator drafts an investigative report, which, along with all the evidence gathered in the investigation, is reviewed by a supervisor.
Finally, as with any potential legal dispute, you may want to contact a licensed attorney.
