    Complaints

    It is the policy of this department that all complaints against employees or the department, received from any source whether inside or outside the department, including anonymous complaints, will be documented and investigated. It is the intent of this policy to: 

    1. Protect the employee, the community, and the department 
    2. To identify and correct inappropriate behavior 
    3. To identify and remedy procedural problems and 
    4. To enhance the profession of law enforcement.


    Those incidents, which involve a difference of opinion between a police officer and a citizen, solely over the guilt or innocence of an offense, shall not be investigated officially. Complainants in such cases shall be advised to pursue adjudication through the court system. 

    Any person aware of the misconduct of a College Station Police Department employee may file a complaint. The complaint can be filed anytime by email, mail, in person or telephone. If you come into the department to file a complaint, you will usually meet with an available on duty supervisor. A CSPD Compliments and Complaints pamphlet is available in the lobby of the PD and City Hall for further information. The complaint will be thoroughly examined by the assigned investigator, reviewed by the chain of command and then forwarded to a Chief for the final disposition. The person who filed the complaint will be notified as to the results of the investigation.

    Biased Based Policing Policy

    Members of the College Station Police Department will not engage in any activities that are discriminatory or indicative of the practice of bias based policing. Personnel will focus on the behavior of individuals and/or specific suspect information in taking police action. Individuals will not be targeted for enforcement action, detention, field contacts, asset seizure and forfeiture, or interdiction solely on the basis of race, ethnic background, national origin, citizenship, gender, sexual orientation, religion, economic status, age, cultural group or any other identifiable group. Appropriate corrective action will be taken, after investigation, against any employee who engages in bias based policing. Such an investigation may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination.

    Any person who believes they have been targeted by the College Station Police Department for biased based policing may file a complaint. The complaint can be filed anytime by email, mail, in person or telephone. If you come into the department to file a complaint, you will usually meet with an available on duty supervisor. A CSPD Compliments and Complaints pamphlet is available in the lobby of the PD and City Hall for further information. The complaint will be thoroughly examined by the assigned investigator, reviewed by the chain of command and then forwarded to a Chief for the final disposition. The person who filed the complaint will be notified as to the results of the investigation.
