Public Commendation / Complaint

Quality Service is Your Right

The San Francisco Police Department is dedicated to providing the finest police service possible. In order to continue to provide quality service to the community, we need your assistance. This is your Police Department and we welcome your comments. We encourage you to let us know about the quality of service you receive from our employees.

If you wish to commend the actions of employees of this Department, you may do so by writing a letter to the captain of the station in your area, or to the SFPD Community Relations Unit. Verbal commendations may also be given to any Department supervisor.

If you believe that the conduct of an employee was inappropriate, you may request to speak to a supervisor at any police station and /or request an OCC (Office of Citizens Complainsts) form. If you are unable to pick up a form from any of the ten police district stations, you may call OCC (415) 241-7711 to request a form to be mailed to you. You can also visit OCC's website to download a printable form.
