Officer Complaints

The Orange County Sheriff's Department is dedicated to ensuring that all employees perform their duties with professional competence and discipline. The integrity of the Department is based upon open communication between citizens and the Orange County Sheriff's Department. Therefore, all complaints will be accepted, whether by citizens of the community or employees. At no time will an Orange County Sheriff's Department employee discourage, intimidate, or otherwise coerce anyone who desires to file a complaint from doing so. All complaints will be fully investigated. No false or frivolous complaints will be ignored, and those individuals filing false reports will be prosecuted pursuant to North Carolina Statutory Authority.

Complaints may be made in person, in writing, via Email or over the telephone. All persons filing complaints will receive an acknowledgement letter that the complaint was received, and is being investigated. At the conclusion of the investigation, the complainant will receive notice that the investigation has been completed.
