A positive relationship between the Police Department and the community of Napa is very important to us and allows us to protect and serve effectively.  The Chief of Police encourages and welcomes citizens to bring their compliments and concerns about the Department’s operations and the conduct of its employees to our attention.

It is the practice of the Napa Police Department to thoroughly investigate complaints of misconduct made against its employees. In order to do so, we must rely on the complainant to provide us with truthful and factual information.

A complaint may be made online, in person, over the phone, by email, or in writing.  When summarizing, please try to include as much of the following information as possible, such as employee(s) name, badge number, and/or vehicle number. If you do not have this information, please provide the date, time, and location of the incident.
