Submit a Commendation
Feedback is vital as we continuously strive to improve how we serve our community. If you would like to commend a staff member, our agency, or simply make a suggestion, we appreciate your input and your time.
The Douglas County Sheriff's Office has trained our personnel to provide consistent and professional service. As a member of our community, you can assist the Sheriff's Office as we strive to ensure that the service we provide meets the high standards expected. We encourage your participation. We want you to give us information when you observe actions by the Sheriff's Office or individual employees, which you believe needs our attention. This information can be both actions that you find commendatory.
You may report your observations in person, by letter or on the telephone. The Sheriff's Office does accept anonymous information, however we may not be able to act on it as effectively as when you provide your identity. Anonymous reports are investigated to the extent which the information allows.
If you have any questions or concerns you may contact Internal Affairs. In the case of an employee commendation, the employee will be notified of the event and a copy will be placed in their employment file.
Normally the review process takes a few more days. We recognize and value the citizens who are the eyes and ears of our community and its law enforcement. We respect and welcome your input, both favorable and not. Whenever you see employee actions that you believe the Sheriff should be aware of, please report those actions to us.
Your commendation can be submitted anonymously if you prefer. Most fields are optional. Provide as much information as you are comfortable with. Again, we thank you for your input.
