Report Police Misconduct or Request a Review
You may download and print a form to submit a complaint or request a review of police misconduct to the Panel by email, mail, or in person. To submit a complaint or request for review of a use of force incident, submit the form on the Independent Police Auditor website.
Complaint and Review Request Process
Members of the public may use the Complaint/Review Request form to submit to the Panel:
- Initial Complaints of police misconduct. Complaints will be forwarded to the Fairfax County Police Department for appropriate investigation. The Complainant and the Panel will be informed of the results of the investigation.
- Review Requests regarding already completed Fairfax County Police Department investigations into police misconduct. The Panel reviews investigations for accuracy, completeness, thoroughness, objectivity and impartiality and issues public reports on its findings.
