Henry County Police Department
How to file a Complaint on an Officer
The Henry County Police Department takes allegations of employee misconduct very seriously. Employees, who are determined to be guilty of misconduct, are subject to disciplinary action in the form of reprimands, suspensions, termination from employment, and/or criminal prosecution. Therefore, it is important that all complainants and witnesses take the allegations of employee misconduct seriously.
Anyone wishing to file a complaint should do so in person. Complaints can be made with any supervisor at any precinct, or can be made at the watch office or the Internal Affairs Division located at the Henry County Police Department's Headquarters.
However, any citizen, who knowingly makes a false allegation in an official inquiry, such as an internal investigation, may be subject to a Grand Jury indictment and criminal prosecution for:
- False Statement - O.C.G.A. §16-10-20
- False Swearing - O.C.G.A. §16-10-71
- Any other Felony and/or Misdemeanor violation
For the above reasons, we wish to encourage that your written or taped statement be as complete and accurate as possible. Please include all the facts concerning the incident being discussed, even if some of the facts may be embarassing.
We thank you in advance for cooperating in these investigations, and will make every effort to make a fair and impartial finding.
If you have any questions, comments, or concerns in regards to the complaint process, please call (770) 288-8205.
