Officer/Employee Complaint Form

  1. Officer/Employee Complaints
    The Michigan City Police Department operates with the expectation of the highest levels of professionalism from both sworn and non-sworn personnel. If you feel an employee of the MCPD has mistreated you in any manner, please let us know. Citizens initiating misconduct complaints can be assured their complaint will be given a thorough and fair investigation.
  2. Please be advised that submitting an internal affairs complaint will not have any effect on charges, either criminal or civil, that have been placed against a person by the Michigan City Police Department.
    Only the courts and the LaPorte County Prosecutor’s Office can resolve those matters.
  3. We do not accept anonymous complaints.
    All complainants must provide their name and telephone number to allow us to conduct a thorough investigation into the alleged violation.
