How do I file a complaint against an employee of the police department?
If you have a serious complaint against the department or any of its employees, you are encouraged to make that complaint in person at the police department. A Communications Operator will contact a supervisor to take your complaint.
The supervisor will assist you in completing a Complaint Control Form which asks you to provide the following information: your name, address, and phone number; date and time of the incident as well as a brief description; and the name(s) of the employee(s) involved in the incident.
Complaints will be thoroughly investigated. During the investigation process, you may be contacted for additional information about the incident. Based upon the findings of the investigation, a policy or procedure may be reviewed or changed, or an employee disciplined. The Marion Police Department will notify you of any action taken, although not the specific nature of disciplinary action.
