How can a complaint be filed?

A complaint may be filed by personally contacting the Police Department at 310-412-5211 and furnishing complete details of the incident, as well as the names of all witnesses or parties involved. The complainant will be requested to write a statement in his/her own handwriting and sign the statement. You will be provided with a copy of your statements for your own record.

While personal contact is desirable, initial complaints may be made by telephone or letter. The complainant is encouraged to make a written statement and remain available to the investigator for a personal interview.
