What can you do if you think that the officer did something wrong or inappropriate?

Police officers are public servants and guardians of the community. Police officers have the duty to uphold the law, but we want to do so in the most professional manner possible. While the vast majority of police officers are honorable and do the right thing if you feel like our officer did something wrong you may make a complaint.
