The City seeks to ensure that officers perform their duties with professionalism. Honest feedback is essential to maintaining a police department that is trustworthy and responsive to the communities it serves. It is therefore crucial that truthfulness be maintained in the filing and investigation of complaints against the police.

Please be advised that Minnesota law (Minn. Stat. § 609.505) makes it a criminal offense to make a knowingly false and defamatory report of police officer misconduct.

You may indicate a preference as to whether a civilian or sworn officer investigates your complaint. This will be taken into consideration by managers but does not guarantee that your preference will be accommodated.

These fields have no bearing on the merit of your complaint; they are used purely for statistical purposes.
