The Chapel Hill Police Department is dedicated to protecting the rights of all citizens and we carefully investigate all complaints relating to police service and/or police misconduct.
We strive to be courteous, thorough, and impartial in our investigations and fair in our judgments and decision-making.
People who work in the police service should behave appropriately at all times. Expectations about behavior of both police officers and members of police staff are made clear in our policies and procedures. These expectations include requirements to:
- Act with honesty, integrity, fairness, and impartiality
- Treat members of the public and fellow employees with respect
- Not abuse their powers and authority
- Act in a manner that does not discredit or undermine public confidence in police service
Citizens who would like to notify us of a concern should contact us at 919-968-2760 and ask to speak with a supervisor.
The Chapel Hill Police Department compiles quarterly reports that detail information about complaints and internal investigations. Links to those reports are found below.
