How do I file a citizen complaint?

If you believe that the conduct of an employee was inappropriate, you may request to speak to a supervisor at the police station. This will result in the immediate investigation of your complaint. If you do not wish to make the complaint in person, you may obtain a Citizen/Internal Complaint form from any supervisor or at the front reception window at the public safety lobby, Mon-Fri 8am-4:30pm. You will be provided with a fact sheet which will assist you in filing your complaint.

If you are unable to pick up a form in person, you may call our 24-hour number at 708-447-2127 to file a complaint or request the form be mailed to your home or you can

submit one online.
