Citizen Complaint Process

Texas Local Government Code

Sec. 614.022 – Complaint to be in writing and signed by complainant

To be considered by the head of a state agency or by the head of a fire department or local law enforcement agency, the complaint must be:

  1. In writing; and
  2. Signed by the person making the complaint.

The Stafford Police Department requires that all complaints against any employee be submitted on a sworn affidavit. Attached is a form you may use for this purpose. You may complete this form, have it notarized and return it to the Stafford Police Department either in person or by U.S. Mail. If you wish, Stafford Police Department personnel will notarize the form for you at no cost if you deliver it Monday through Friday, 8am to 5pm. If you choose this option, do not sign the form until you are in the presence of the notary.

Please include all relevant information on the form and explain fully the basis for your complaint.
