File a Complaint

We at the Ventura Police Department are constantly striving to provide the highest quality service in a courteous and professional manner. Those that we serve are an important source of information and feedback about the quality of our service. Also, unfortunately, in the course of police operations, conflicts or misunderstandings can arise between Police Department employees and community members. Recognizing these facts, we've established a procedure for community members to report Police Department employee conduct that they feel is unprofessional. If you feel that a member of the Ventura Police Department has acted improperly, a Complaint Form is available in English and in Spanish.
