Complaints

 

  Our department prides it self in our employees, in the professional manner in which our officers are trained to respond to calls for service.  Occasionally, there will be times when a citizen feels  that they have been mis-treated by the Police Department.  We consider these complaints, a way for the Shelbyville Police to monitor the actions of our employees.  We have installed, in car video cameras, in most all of our police units.  These cameras help protect the citizen as well as officer against any false allegations.  Also, we monitor telephone calls coming into the Shelbyville Police Department on various lines, also to insure that all calls are handled in a professional manner.

If you do have a complaint against any employee of the Shelbyville Police Department, you will need to come into the department and speak with the supervisor on duty.  They will be proud to provide you with a Citizen Complaint Form.  This form must be filled out completely, and concisely naming all parties involved and those that have witnessed the complaint actions.  Once this form is returned to the department, it will be forwarded to a supervisor for investigation.  Following an investigation, a decision will be made whether the claim is justified, un-founded, or inconclusive, and you will be notified by mail of the results.

If you have disability which prevents you from completing the form, any supervisor will assist you in completing a complaint against a police officer.  You will be asked to identify yourself and then to give specific details about your complaint.

Citizens should be aware that persons filing false complaints against Shelbyville Police Department employees may be prosecuted under the authority of TCA Code  39-16-502 . Officers may also pursue a civil recourse against persons who file a complaint against them under false pretenses.
