What happens to my complaint after it is received?

All complaints received by the Sheriff's Office are routed by the severity of the complaint. The most serious types of complaints are investigated by Internal Affairs, and involve allegations such as excessive force, any discharge of firearms, or serious rules violations such as insubordination. Complaints comparatively less serious in nature, such as rude behavior or improper procedure, are forwarded to the individual officer's division for investigation. In every case, the person making the complaint will be notified of the final disposition either by telephone, email or U.S. Mail.
