The Office of Professional Standards is responsible for the investigation of allegations of police misconduct from the public and within the department. The Office of Professional Standards is responsible for any investigations that are assigned by the Chief of Police to maintain the integrity of the department by rooting out any inappropriate behavior committed by employees of the department and to protect innocent members of the department who are inappropriately accused of wrongdoing. The office is also responsible for investigating all Civil Tort Claims filed against employees of the Clovis Police Department.

How To Make A Complaint

A complaint may be taken by any supervisor of the Clovis Police Department. If you have a complaint about the service provided by members of the Clovis Police Department, please come in person to the Clovis Police Department lobby located at 300 N. Connelly Street and pickup the beige phone on the west wall of the lobby adjacent the display case and ask the Dispatcher to speak to a supervisor in reference to a complaint. We ask that you come in person because there is complaint paperwork to be completed. If you do not wish to come to the police department you may call the Clovis Police Department at (575) 769-1921 and ask the Dispatcher to speak to a supervisor in reference to a complaint.
