Citizen's Complaint Form

Completing the Citizen Complaint Form
  • The Brown County Sheriff's Office (BCSO) is committed to providing professional, high quality services to all citizens; the BCSO does not tolerate misconduct or wrongdoing on the part of its staff. If individuals believe they have been subjected to, or witnessed, police misconduct of any type, the BCSD encouraged them to report the incident.
  • This form has nothing to do with any alleged violation of State or local laws pending against you or anyone else; investigation into any allegation in which the incident is pending before the courts maybe deferred until after the adjudication of the case.
  • The Professional Standards Division is responsible for ensuring that complaints of officer misconduct are investigated and handled properly. If the conduct is a matter of procedural error it may be forwarded to their Division Director for follow-up.
  • Your identity, if you choose, will remain confidential from the officer(s) alleged to be involved. If for a legitimate reason you wish to remain unanimous, please indicate the reason why.
Things to remember when making a complaint.
When filing a complaint, the following information is very important when describing the event.
  • The day, date, time, and location of the incident
  • The officer's name, badge number, and physical description
  • Witnesses' name(s), address, and phone numbers
  • License numbers for any vehicle(s) involved in the incident
  • Any other evidence you feel may be important, such as copies of traffic tickets, police reports, photographs, and medical records. If you have injuries, include their nature and extent
It is vitally important that you file your complaint as soon as possible.
You have the right to make a complaint against a police officer for any improper police conduct. This agency may find after investigating the complaint, 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 the officer behaved improperly.
This complaint form is an official record of the Brown County Sheriff's Office; it is against the law to make a complaint that you know to be false and you may be charged and prosecuted for a crime.
If you wish to make your complaint in person you may contact the Professional Standards Division for an appointment at one of the following numbers (920) 448-4456 or (920) 448-4204.
