Citizen Complaints

The Belvedere Police Department believes that trust and confidence between members of the Police Department and the community we serve is essential to effective law enforcement. Law enforcement officers must be free to exercise their best judgement and to initiate enforcement action in a reasonable, lawful, and impartial manner without fear of reprisal. In the same manner, enforcers of the law have a special obligation to respect the rights of all persons.

In order to maintain its high standards, the Belvedere Police Department welcomes constructive criticism of departmental procedure and valid complaints against police officers. The public has a right to demand fair, impartial and effective law enforcement. Your constructive concerns and valid complaints will help us to fulfill this demand. It is the policy of the department to investigate all such complaints received.
