Commendation / Complaint Form

The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department values your opinion.

You may make a commendation or complaint in person, by completing the below form, by sending an email to, or by calling or writing to any Sheriff’s station, jail or facility. If you write, your complaint does not have to be on any special form. When you make your complaint in person, ask for the Watch Commander or person in charge. The Watch Commander will listen to your complaint and fill out what we call a Service Comment Report. If you choose to call in your commendation or complaint, dial 1-800-698-TALK.
