We respond to requests for records of complaints about policing.

    About

    You can request records of all complaints against police officers. Before we release records, we remove sensitive information like medical information and the names of the people who filed the complaint and witnesses. 

    We also publish 4 categories of records on our online public records portal: 

    1. Officer-Involved Shootings
    2. Great-Bodily Injuries
    3. Officer Sexual Assault
    4. Officer Dishonesty

    These 4 categories are sometimes called “SB 1421 Records” after the 2019 bill that requires us to publish them.
