Submit a Complaint to the Grand Jury

The Grand Jury receives numerous citizen complaints throughout the year. Every complaint is carefully reviewed by the Jury and a determination is made regarding jurisdiction. If jurisdiction is confirmed and the complaint warrants investigation, it is assigned to the appropriate committee.

The committee will investigate the complaint with oversight by the Jury. At times, ad hoc committees may be formed to investigate specific complaints. The Jury is kept informed of the progress of the investigation. A written report regarding a specific complaint may be published and included in the Final Report.

Your confidentiality will be rigorously protected!
