The core values of integrity and professionalism define our character and guide our interactions. We operate on the principle that all persons we deal with deserve to be treated equally and fairly. Therefore, we welcome both criticism and praise and take it seriously. You have the right to make a complaint against an officer for any improper police conduct. Louisiana law requires this agency to have a procedure to investigate citizens' complaints. You have the right to a written description of this procedure. This agency may find after investigation that there is not enough evidence to warrant action on your complaint. Even if that is the case, you have the right to make the complaint and have it investigated if you believe an officer behaved improperly. Citizen complaints and any reports or findings relating to complaints must be retained by this agency for at least five years.
We value your input. Thank you for taking the time to help us serve you better.
