Your Feedback Matters

We appreciate and value the feedback we receive from the community and use it to ensure our employees continue to meet the high professional standards we expect of honesty, integrity and professionalism. 


Where an employee has exceeded your expectations and ‘gone the extra mile’ to provide you with outstanding service, we would like you to tell us about it.  We are dedicated to encouraging good police work and promoting positive community relationships.

Concerns and Complaints

We understand that working in partnership with the community to prevent crime, is only possible where the community trusts and supports the police and realize that providing negative feedback or filing a complaint can be difficult. If you are concerned about an employee’s conduct or your expectations have not been met, we also want you to tell us about that.
