Feedback and Citizen Complaints
Any member of the public that wishes to file a complaint may do so by contacting a McFarland Police Department supervisor (Sergeant, Lieutenant, or Chief of Police) at the McFarland Police Department. If a supervisor is not available, the attending officer will advise you as to when a supervisor will be available.
If you would like to submit a complaint, please fill out the online complaint form to the best of your ability with as much information as possible. Upon completion, the form will be sent to a supervisor. You will receive periodic updates on the status of your form if you choose to include your email address. If you are unable to fill out the form online or need assistance, please contact us and we will have an officer complete the form for you in person or via phone.
More information on how citizen complaints are handle can be found in the Citizen Complaint Directive (PDF). The public may review this policy by contacting the Lieutenant during normal business hours. Please note: As required by Sec. 946.66 of the Wisconsin State Statutes: "Whoever knowingly makes a false complaint regarding the conduct of a law enforcement officer is subject to a class A forfeiture".
