WSU POLICE Complaint Form

The Washington State University Police Department is accountable for the acts and omissions of all of its employees. To that end, an obligation exists to our employees, the department, and the citizens of Washington State University to investigate allegations of misconduct or substandard performance.

Enclosed is a form designed to assist in gathering all information relevant to a complaint. The form may be completed by the complainant, the complainant’s representative or by a Police Department member.

Depending on the seriousness of the allegation, your complaint may be resolved with the information being given to the officer’s supervisor. Other complaints will receive further investigative efforts and will be investigated by the officer’s shift sergeant or supervisor. This investigation will be forwarded to the WSU PD Captain who may direct additional investigation and assign a case number, or recommend the findings to the Chief of Police. You may be asked  for additional information that relates to your complaint. You will be notified on how your complaint will be resolved.

The law regarding making false or misleading statements is printed at the bottom of the complaint form. Please read this carefully. Making a false or misleading material statement to a public servant is a crime. Police Department employees who are the subject of frivolous or malicious statements may have legal recourse against a false accuser.

When completing the form, verify that information on the form is correct. If you have any questions regarding the form, please contact the Washington State University Police Department at (509) 335-8548 during regular business hours.
