You have the right to make a complaint against a police officer for any improper police conduct. California law requires the Grass Valley Police Department to have a procedure to investigate citizen complaints. You have the right to a written description of this procedure, which is available online (gvpd.net) or requested at the Grass Valley Police Department. This agency may find after the investigation that there is not enough evidence to warrant action on your complaint. Even if that is the case you have the right to make the complaint and have it investigated if you believe that an officer behaved improperly. Citizens’ complaints and any reports or finding must be retained for at least five years.
