Complaint Procedure

Complaint Procedure

  1. Complaint Procedure

    The Beaver County Sheriff’s Office welcomes complaints about the agency's service or its personnel. Your constructive comments provide an open channel of communication between the agency and the community, which enables us to maintain the highest standards possible. This policy exists in order to ensure thorough investigation of all complaints given to the agency by citizens of the community. If your complaint involves an officer, you will be asked his/her name and vehicle description. If you do not have this information, just explain what occurred and when it occurred (date, time, and location of the event.)

    Valid complaints help us to protect the community from possible misconduct. At the same time, a thorough and impartial investigation procedure protects those employees who perform their duties properly. 

    Sheriff Cody V Black


    Summary of Complaint Process

    After your complaint is filed, a Sheriff’s Office member assigned by the Sheriff will promptly gather all information pertinent to each allegation of misconduct in the complaint. The final disposition on the case will be made by the Sheriff. You will be notified by letter at the conclusion of the investigation. When complaints are found to be sustained, the Sheriff shall determine and administer appropriate corrective action.

    You have the right to make a complaint against a Peace Officer for any improper police conduct. Utah Law requires this agency to have a procedure to investigate citizens’ complaints. You have the right to a written description of this procedure. This agency may find after 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 an officer behaved improperly. Citizen complaints and any reports or findings related to complaints must be retained for at least five (5) years.
