The Lewisville Police Department will fairly and objectively investigate all allegations of police misconduct in order to insure the integrity of the Department.

If you have a complaint against a Lewisville Police Department employee, following these procedures will insure a prompt and efficient investigation.

The Lewisville Police Department classifies complaints as either “Class I” or “Class II” complaints.

Class I complaints consist of serious misconduct allegations and include:

  1. Civil Rights Violations
  2. Excessive Force
  3. Criminal Activity
  4. Death or injury of any person in police custody
  5. Discharge of firearm
  6. Any other violation which could result in termination

If your complaint falls into this category, the Internal Affairs Unit of the Lewisville Police Department will more than likely be responsible for the investigation. Section 614.022 of the Texas Government Code states for a complaint to be considered it must be:

  1. In writing; and
  2. Signed by the person making the complaint.
