Let us know your concerns about the Salem Police Department. The
Salem Police Department is committed to providing courteous and effective service to all Salem residents. Police employees are expected to treat every individual with respect, courtesy, and dignity.
Sometimes a complaint is a simple misunderstanding, and other times a formal investigation and report is required. Nonetheless, every complaint is taken very seriously.
Please note: The internal affairs process cannot address complaints about legal issues such as whether a citation should have been issued or finding guilt or innocence in a criminal case. Those concerns must be addressed by a court of law.
