We are dedicated to being a leader in code compliance and committed to responsive resolution of neighborhood concerns. Our department investigates most neighborhood, quality of life complaints. This includes everything from neighbors parking in the grass to junk in the yard to overcrowding to hoarding to unpermitted construction. As a complaint-based agency, DCC only responds to complaints received from the public or internal referrals from other county agencies, and does not proactively look for possible code violations. The public may submit complaints online, by telephone, or in person. To make a complaint, for questions regarding the types of complains we investigate or for assistance with specific complaints, contact the DCC Intake Staff at 703-324-1300, TYY 711, or visit the DCC office in the Herrity Building, tenth floor.
