You may file your complaint with IOLERO, or you may file a complaint directly with the Sheriff’s Office. However, if you want to ensure your complaint is audited by IOLERO, you should file it with our office.
One of the primary functions of IOLERO is to serve as a neutral, independent location where a member of the public may file a complaint against the Sheriff’s Office without concern that they may experience discomfort or intimidation during that process.
The goal of the Office is to make the process of filing a complaint as comfortable for the public as possible, while also trying to gather complete information from the complainant to help ensure that the investigation of the complaint can be effective.
A member of the public may file a complaint in person or online.
Please download the complaint form below and return it to IOLERO by email by entering "Submit" at the end of the form. We highly recommend that you save a copy of your completed form to your own computer before submitting. You may also return the form via U.S. mail, fax to (707) 565-5715, or in person at our office.
