The Indiana State Police Department is committed to maintaining the integrity of its employees and accountability to the public. Each year the department receives hundreds of letters, telephone calls, faxes, e-mails and personal visits from citizens who wish to commend the actions of many officers and civilian employees. There are, however, occasions when a citizen contacts the department for the purpose of registering a complaint concerning the conduct of an employee. The policy of the Indiana State Police Department is to accept and resolve citizen complaints in a manner which will demonstrate the department’s commitment to professionalism.
If you believe a member of the Indiana State Police has conducted themselves in an unprofessional manner, and you wish to register a complaint with the Department, please visit our "Citizen Complaint Procedure" page for more information on the complaint procedure.
