Just as deputies are free to initiate law enforcement action in a reasonable, lawful, and impartial manner, citizens are also free to file a complaint against Sheriff’s Office employees without fear of reprisal, retribution, or harassment. The Office of Professional Accountability receives and investigates those complaints and is responsible for initiating disciplinary action when appropriate. Our goal is to resolve the issues in a thorough, timely, and courteous manner.
We respect your privacy and will not distribute your personal information except as necessary to resolve your request or complaint. However, you should be aware that this information is subject to the Washington State public disclosure laws and may be disclosable upon request. While we encourage those who make complaints to provide their names and other information, we do accept anonymous complaints. However, an anonymous complaint can be very difficult to investigate. During the course of the investigation, additional information may be required from you to ensure a successful conclusion.
