Filing a Complaint
The Complaint Process:
As a citizen, you are encouraged to contact the Ephraim City Police Department if you have a complaint about the actions of an officer or non-sworn employee if you believe their conduct was inappropriate or violated the law. We do not consider a disagreement over the elements of a traffic citation to be a complaint. Any disputes over traffic citations received should be taken to the appropriate jurisdictional court for resolution. Complaints must be made in good faith, and false or highly exaggerated complaints serve no good purpose for either the citizens or the officer. Anyone who willfully makes any false accusation for the purpose of discrediting a police officer may be prosecuted under Utah State Criminal Code 76-8-504.5 for a Class A misdemeanor.
To initiate a complaint, you may contact the Ephraim City Police Department office by obtaining a complaint form below. You will be asked to provide a written statement on an official complaint form regarding the nature of your complaint with as much detail concerning the incident and why you believe the officer's conduct was inappropriate. The form should be filled out as completely as possible. EPD office hours are Monday -Friday from 8:00 AM -4:30 PM. You may also call (435) 283-4602.
The Ephraim City Police Department's complaint form can be obtained by contacting them through their official website or in-person. Upon completing the form, you will be required to submit it, in person, to the department as you will be required to provide positive identification and sign as the complainant in front of a witness while at the department. Complaints will only be received during office hours.
Filing a complaint can help the department identify areas for improvement and ensure officers are held accountable for misconduct. Remember to file complaints in good faith and provide detailed and specific information to help the Ephraim City Police Department investigate the matter thoroughly and take appropriate action.
