A WRITTEN DESCRIPTION OF THIS PROCEDURE IS CONTAINED IN THIS DOCUMENT.

CITIZEN COMPLAINTS MUST BE RETAINED BY THIS AGENCY FOR AT LEAVE FIVE YEARS. IT IS AGAINST THE LAW TO MAKE A COMPLAINT THAT YOU KNOW TO BE FALSE. IF YOU MAKE A COMPLAINT AGAINST AN OFFICER KNOWING THAT IT IS FALSE, YOU CAN BE PROSECUTED ON A MISDEMEANOR CHARGE.
