Understanding the Process

A police officer (rank of sergeant or higher) will interview the individual filing the complaint. The officer will ask the alleged complainant questions about what happened. The officer may be able to explain the officer actions to your satisfaction.
- Usually, the alleged victim will be interviewed at the Police Department’s main building. It is possible that he/she may be videotaped during the interview.
- The individual filing the complaint may bring a lawyer, family member, or friend to the interview.
- The police officer will ask the individual filing the complaint for the names of witnesses and other police officers that may know facts about the complaint.
- The investigating officer may take pictures of any injuries that the alleged victim think are related to the complaint.
After the interview, the De Leon Police Department will investigate the alleged misconduct. The investigator(s) will talk to witnesses and visit the site of the incident.
