Complaint Procedure

Download the Citizen Complaint form

It is the policy of the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office to promptly investigate allegations of wrongdoing by Sheriff’s Office members and to take appropriate action as to discipline, policy change or exoneration.

A complaint means that someone is dissatisfied with our performance.  If we are doing something wrong, the complainant will help the Sheriff’s Office recognize and ultimately rectify the wrongdoing.

It is the intent of the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office to provide its citizens with only the highest quality law enforcement services.

To file a complaint, you need to complete one of the following:

  • We encourage complaints be initiated in person.  Complaints can be filed 24 hours a day with a Patrol shift supervisor. 
  • During regular business hours, personnel are available at the Sheriff’s Office to take a complaint. 
  • If you are unable to visit the Sheriff’s Office in person, you may mail a completed form to the address listed below.

If you are under 18 years of age, you must have a parent or guardian present with you when you speak to a Supervisor; or, if you submit a complaint form via mail, your parent or guardian must sign the form.

Once a Citizen Complaint form is submitted to the Sheriff’s Office, you will be notified by mail that your complaint has been received and an investigation has been initiated.  Your complaint will be investigated according to appropriate procedures.  You will be contacted by the investigating supervisor to discuss the complaint.  Once the complaint investigation has concluded, you will receive a letter from Sheriff Steve A. Hutcherson notifying you of its completion.

The Sheriff’s Office encourages legitimate complaints be filed as a means in which to help the Sheriff’s Office and its members become accountable to the public.  However, false, misleading, and/or malicious allegations may result in civil and/or criminal sanctions.
