Compliments / Complaints


Internal Affairs 

Internal Affairs is a fact finding internal investigation unit. Internal Affairs is under the direct supervision of the Chief of Police. Internal Affairs has the authority and responsibility to initiate an investigation into citizen complaints of employee misconduct and performance.

Internal Affairs will take complaints during normal working hours and refer the complainant to the appropriate supervisor if the complaint is regarding an employee that is on duty. If the employee is not on duty, the complaint will be documented and forwarded to the appropriate supervisor for further investigation.

Generally, it is the responsibility of the first line supervisor to investigate citizen complaints involving their personnel. Internal Affairs will conduct internal investigations into serious allegations of misconduct as well as conduct investigations that are too lengthy or time consuming for a line supervisor to investigate.

In addition to complaints, the Fayetteville Police Department also accepts compliments from the public. Information related to compliments can help identify how the Fayetteville Police Department can better serve the public.

Compliments or Complaints can be made in person, by phone, in writing, or through this website. All complaints to include anonymous complaints are accepted and reviewed with follow up activity to be assigned to the appropriate personnel.
