That's not what we want to happen, so you should share your complaint with a lawyer first. Later, you can file it with a police investigative agency. After you complete your complaint, you can save it in three ways ... Print it Download it Email it For your protection, we will delete your story from our system. But we will preserve some anonymous data for police accountability researchers. After you've checked with a lawyer – or any charges are resolved – you can re-upload your complaint.

Recommend Filing Your Complaint

3184
Content Chunk, Hard-Coded HTML
Based on your survey responses, here's what we recommend. We recommend that you... file your complaint with a police department investigative agency AND publish your complaint on OpenPolice.org. (We can help you do both things.) Because your incident did not involve police use of excessive force – we do not recommend seeking an attorney to sue the police. Unfortunately, few skilled attorneys will take on new police misconduct lawsuits. And the ones they accept generally involve severe injury or death.

With that in mind, do you want us to help you file and publish your complaint? Or do you prefer to search for an attorney on your own?
