Investigation of Complaints

The Muskegon Police Department accepts and investigates all complaints, even those made anonymously. Formal complaints are investigated by Internal Affairs. Upon completion of Internal Affairs investigations, the complaint is forwarded to the Director of Public Safety for review. After the Internal Affairs investigation and review, the complainant will receive a complaint disposition form by registered mail.


If the complainant wishes to appeal the findings or any other aspect of an internal affairs investigation, they can do so to the Citizen’s Police Review Board. Learn more about the Citizen’s Police Review Board and appeal process.
