Complaints Wanted: St. Louis Police Make It Easier to File Internal Affairs Grievances

The St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department has opened up two satellite offices for citizens to file internal affairs complaints against the agency.

The two new locations will be open from 12-4 p.m. Tuesday through Thursday at the offices of the St. Louis NAACP and the Thomas Dunn Memorials learning center in south city. In addition, citizens can still file internal affairs complaints at police headquarters, its three patrol divisions and online at slmpd.org.

The off-sites locations come as Chief Dan Isom attempts to clean up the department's image that has suffered in recent years from a well-publicized towing scandal and questionable policing.

In a statement Friday, the department said it hopes the new off-site locations will address concerns who can't file online or are hesitant to file a complaint in person at a police location.
The overwhelming majority of department employees serve with honor, integrity, pride and a commitment to doing the right thing. Still, the department remains dedicated to providing the people of St. Louis the best police service possible and that includes thoroughly investigating complaints, and leveling appropriate consequences if violations are found to have occurred.
