Complaints

If we haven’t done something well, we’d like to hear about it.  Drop us a line at policedept@bainbridgewa.gov, call 206-842-5211, or notify us by mail at 625 Winslow Way E, Bainbridge Island, WA, 98110.

If you wish to file a formal complaint against agency policy or against a specific officer, we prefer you use our Complaint Form (PDF) but using the form is not mandatory.

A few things to know about complaints:

•  Complaints can be submitted anonymously, but if you do not provide your name or contact information, it may hinder us from conducting a complete investigation or reduce our ability to provide follow up regarding complaint disposition.

•  All complaints are documented, reviewed by the Chief of Police, and investigated to the fullest extent possible.

•  The Chief of Police reserves the right to give a complaint an incomplete or insufficient disposition based on incomplete, false, or purposefully misleading information.
