Police Complaint


The San Francisco Police Department is committed to ensuring that all of our officers and civilian staff provide unbiased, quality service to our City’s diverse communities. Toward that goal, the SFPD and the City of San Francisco provide several ways to file a complaint.

The Department of Police Accountability is charged with impartially investigating complaints against SFPD officers and making policy recommendations regarding police practices. You can also call the DPA at 1-415-241-7711 (the TTY line is 1-415-241-7770) or visit the Department of Police Accountability website to file a complaint at https://sfgov.org/dpa/.

The DPA is located at 1 South Van Ness Ave., 8th Floor, San Francisco, CA 94103.

You may also contact a department supervisor at any SFPD police station. Each station is open 24 hours a day. SFPD personnel are required to receive complaints courteously and to assist you with filing them.
