Submitting a Commendation or Complaint
Sonoma State Police believes in transparency and fostering a sense of community with faculty, staff, students, and community members in our current policing practices. UPD is guided by federal, state, systemwide, and campus programs and policies. Our online web form allows the community to submit a commendation or complaint directly to the Sonoma State Police Department. Please complete with as many details as possible. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact Sonoma State Police leadership.
Investigation of Complaints
After your complaint is filed, a Sonoma State Police Employee, assigned by the Chief of Police, will promptly gather all available information pertinent to each allegation of misconduct in the complaint. The final disposition of the case will be made by the Chief of Police. You will be notified by letter, at the conclusion of the investigation. If a complaint is found to be sustained, the Chief of Police will determine and administer the appropriate corrective action.
