Public Safety Online Complaint Form

Section 1

Online Complaint Submission Form

It is the standard practice of the UCI Police Department to conduct comprehensive and thorough investigations into any allegation of misconduct or substandard service. Whether such allegations are from individual's complaints or internally generated.

Our procedure for receiving and investigating such allegations shall comply with all requirements of California codes, and in compliance with UCI Police Department Policy 1008 - UCI Police Department Personnel Complaint Procedure.  The investigation of allegations against peace officers shall specifically comply with the California Public Safety Officer’s Procedural Bill of Rights.

Complaints will be accepted in person, over the telephone, or in writing.  Anonymous complaints or complaints from individuals who wish their names to be held in confidence, will also be accepted for investigation.

You may choose to submit a complaint by:

  • Completing and submitting this Online Complaint Submission form 
  • Completing and mailing or hand delivering a PDF fillable Complaint form to the UCIPD

The notification of the complainant is an integral part of a complete investigation. However, it should be emphasized that only the final disposition will be released. The discipline imposed, if any, must be regarded as confidential personnel information.

If you choose to submit this form, please fill out complete the form carefully.

You have the right to make a complaint against a police officer for any improper police conduct. California law requires this agency to have a procedure to investigate complaints. You have a 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 or any member of the police department behaved improperly. Civilian complaints and any reports or findings related to complaints must be retained by this agency for at least five (5) years.
