Flagstaff Police Department-Citizen Commendation/Complaint Form

Leave This Blank:

It is the commitment of the FPD to investigate all complaints against the department and/or its employees. Any person, regardless of age, sex or nationality, who believes they witnessed or has direct knowledge of possible police misconduct, may file a complaint with the FPD. You should contact the department whenever you witness behavior by any department employee which is a violation of city, state, or federal law or involves the excessive use of force, discourteous behavior or abuse of authority.

Generally, complaints are filed through the supervisor of the employee involved but other supervisors may take the complaint. If you wish to speak with a supervisor, you may call (928) 774-1414. After a thorough investigation of the complaint, the employee's supervisor or the office of professional standards will promptly contact you in writing. You will be advised of the supervisor's findings and whether disciplinary action will be taken. You will not be advised of the specific disciplinary action taken.

It is also the commitment of the FPD to investigate all FPD employee commendations. Commendations are highly appreciated and recognize FPD staff showing exemplary behavior, courtesy and tact in their duties, responsibilities or operations. If you should choose to acknowledge an officer who protects our community's values by commending them, you may use this form as well or contact
(928) 774-1414.
