The Office of Police Oversight (OPO) provides oversight of the Austin Police Department’s conduct and practices, addressing concerns and complaints of alleged violations of policy. Complaints against police officers can be filed in-person, over the phone, online, or by mail. Contact the Office of Police Oversight to file a complaint.
The process for giving feedback about Austin Police officers has been redesigned. Complaints can now be filed on the OPO website, www.atxpoliceoversight.org, using the new online form, which is available in both English and Spanish. The online version of the form also allows community members to submit complaints anonymously.
We also want to hear about the good experiences that community members have with the Police Department. Along with the complaint form there is also a Thank You form that can be used to show appreciation for police officers. The Thank You form is also available at www.atxpoliceoversight.org
