  3. Your complaint will then be investigated. You may be contacted and asked additional questions about your complaint.
  4. If the investigation into your complaint will be lengthy, you will receive a letter telling you approximately when you may expect a reply.
  5. Upon the conclusion of the investigation, you will receive a letter from the Chief of Police regarding the findings and disposition of the investigation.
