How to make a complaint?

Any citizen who feels like they have been targeted by a Robinson Police Officer in violation of this policy can file a complaint online, by mail, or in person. When a citizen lodges a complaint against a member of the Robinson Police Department, the complaint will be investigated by a supervisor and forwarded to the Office of the Chief of Police. TEXAS STATE LAW (Government Code 614.022) requires that all complaints against police officers must be in writing and signed by the person making the complaint. Just as citizens who are arrested must be notified of the charges against them, the police officer must be given a copy of the complaint before any disciplinary action may be taken. The person who claims to be aggrieved must make the complaint. Other persons may give statements as witnesses. The Chief of Police will conduct a thorough investigation of your complaint and you will be advised of the outcome. Traffic tickets issued or differences of opinion between police officers and citizens over the issuance of traffic tickets will not be investigated. Specific allegations of misconduct or racial profiling about a member(s) of the department will be thoroughly investigated.
