Last modified at 2/13/2024 7:32 a.m.

File a Complaint:

A complaint should be filed when you feel that a member of the SBCCD Police Department has acted improperly in the course of their work. Whether the complaint is related to discourteous treatment, failure to take action, inaccurate report writing, an unjustified arrest, unnecessary force or any other police action that you feel is wrong, the Police Accountability Board wants to know about it.

The complaint process is designed to detect and correct improper or undesirable police practices. All investigations are kept confidential; retaliation for filing a complaint is prohibited.

To file a complaint, follow the directions on the Police Accountability link to file a complaint online, in person, by telephone, by mail or fax.

If you prefer, you may also contact our non-emergency number and speak with an on-call supervisor at 909-387-1605.

Important information about filing a complaint:

Please provide as much information as possible about the incident. Your complaint should include:

  • Time, date, and location of the incident.
  • Names and badge numbers of officers (if known).
  • Names and phone numbers of witnesses (if known).
  • Any documents related to the incident, such as photographs, citations, hospital records.
