TO FILE AN OFFICIAL COMPLAINT AGAINST THE POLICE
At present, the CRB does not have the authority to initiate or review complaints against the police. The CRB is, in fact, in the process of researching and developing the most effective way to provide civilian oversight of the police department, including the review of civilian complaints against police officers. Currently, the only way to file a complaint against a Police officer is through the Police Department directly. The CRB encourages anyone who has experienced or witnessed perceived police misconduct to file a complaint with the Police Department. To file an official complaint form against a Police Officer please visit the Police Department's website by clicking on the link below.
