Citizen Complaint/Commendation Form

It is essential that the citizens of Alachua County have confidence in their Sheriff's Office and the administration which supervises the exercise of police authority. This mandates that procedures for investigating and resolving all complaints and allegations of misconduct be instituted.

Although citizen complaints are frequently based upon misunderstandings of the law or established law enforcement procedures, they are of great concern and can lead to a mistrust of law enforcement if not investigated or explained. All citizens are encouraged to bring forward legitimate grievances regarding employee misconduct.

All complaints received against the ACSO or any employee will be investigated and resolved.

Employees will be notified of all commendations received.
