The North Branch Police Department thoroughly investigates allegations of employee misconduct or criticism of its services.
If you believe you have been mistreated or witnessed an action you suspect violates department policy or state statute, please take the time to register your complaint by contacting Chief Dan Meyer at (651) 674-8848. You will be provided a Complaint Form that you can complete and return to the department. The department will make every effort to ensure that no adverse consequences occur to any person or witness who files a complaint or provides information to any investigation of a complaint.
Upon receipt of an allegation, the Chief will make an initial determination whether the facts alleged warrant an investigation. If an investigation is warranted, the Chief will assign the appropriate supervisor or request an outside agency to handle the investigation. Investigations shall be conducted within 30 days of the filing of the complaint, unless circumstances exist where additional time is needed. After the investigation is complete, the citizen who filed the complaint shall be given a copy of the “findings of fact.”
