Police Complaint Lookup
CUAPB has spent years using data practices requests to obtain public records about formal police complaints. The public has a right to this information, but the government does little to make it publicly available. This archive provides a means for the community to search an officer's name and see the complaints that have been brought against them. The archive is extensive, but does not include all complaints made against officers. It also does not include the countless complaints that do not make it into the formal system of a government office.
Under our state's data practices act and various court decisions, for complaints that are not sustained, we can only know about the existence of the complaint, the officer(s) involved and the status of the complaint. For complaints that are sustained and disciplined, we can also know the nature of the complaint and any discipline imposed.
