What is a citizen complaint?

A citizen complaint is an allegation from any source, of any action or inaction by Department personnel the individual considers being contrary to law, proper procedure, good order or in some manner prejudicial to the individual, the Police Department, or to the community.

If the only complaint is a contention of innocence of a charge without any allegation of misconduct by the officer, you should seek judicial redress through established court procedure.
