West Jordan Police Department
Citizen Complaint Form
The West Jordan Police Department welcomes all feedback including criticism or complaints from anyone we come in contact with. It is our desire to maintain a positive and cooperative relationship with the community while effectively enforcing the law.
We fully realize that our involvement in complex and often emotionally charged situations may not always result in a level of performance you, the citizen, have grown to expect. For this reason, the Police Department has a well-defined procedure for assisting those who wish to voice their grievances against our operations, policies, or employee conduct.
All investigations are thorough, objective, and are aimed at maintaining public confidence and departmental integrity. The goal is neither to condemn nor to exonerate, but rather to identify and evaluate all the facts surrounding the incident in question.
The following advisement is required by state law:
Legal advisement and acknowledgment
YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO MAKE A COMPLAINT AGAINST A POLICE OFFICER FOR ANY IMPROPER POLICE CONDUCT. UTAH LAW REQUIRES THIS AGENCY TO HAVE A PROCEDURE TO INVESTIGATE CITIZENS COMPLAINTS. YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO A WRITTEN DESCRIPTION OF THIS PROCEDURE. THIS AGENCY MAY FIND AFTER INVESTIGATION THAT THERE IS NOT ENOUGH EVIDENCE TO WARRANT ACTION ON YOUR COMPLAINT; EVEN IF THAT IS THE CASE, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO MAKE THE COMPLAINT AND HAVE IT INVESTIGATED IF YOU BELIEVE AN OFFICER BEHAVES IMPROPERLY.
What happens next
When a complaint is received by the Professional Standards Unit, a thorough, accurate and objective investigation will be conducted. Upon the completion of an investigation a written report, with all findings, will be submitted to the Chief of Police for his final decision. The department will inform the complainant of the official disposition at the conclusion of the investigation.
In all cases, the individual making the complaint will be informed of its final disposition to the extent allowed by the law. Although department investigators will exert every effort to determine the facts of each situation, in those instances where the individual feels that a proper investigation has not been conducted, the Police Department urges that person to seek further recourse through any of the outside agencies listed below.
