The Rock County Sheriff’s Office is committed to providing professional law enforcement services. There are many ways to ensure our services are delivered professionally, however, one of the most important is holding our employees accountable in regards to alleged misconduct. If you were the victim or witness of alleged misconduct, the Rock County Sheriff’s Office requests that you file your complaint in writing on a citizen complaint form. You may file your complaint with any employee of the Sheriff’s Office, who in turn will contact their immediate supervisor regarding your complaint. Moreover, you may call the non-emergency number at 608-757-2244, and ask to speak with an on-duty Sheriff’s Office supervisor. The supervisor will provide you with further directions, including if applicable, issuance of the citizen complaint form.

The Rock County Sheriff’s Office will thoroughly and objectively investigate all complaints of alleged misconduct to equitably determine whether the allegations are valid, or invalid, and to take appropriate action when warranted. Therefore, you will be asked to substantiate your complaint through facts, rather than opinions.

Alleged employee misconduct not only affects the complainant, but Sheriff’s personnel as well as the community. Therefore, any complainant who provides false allegations of employee misconduct will be subject to legal proceedings contained in Wisconsin Statute 946.66(2).
