Professional Regulation Complaints

Complainant Information
The Vermont Criminal Justice Council (VCJC) Professional Regulation Subcommittee (PRS) and the VCJC Executive Director accept from any source complaints of unprofessional conduct against Vermont law enforcement officers, including agency heads.  You may submit such a complaint as described below.

If your complaint alleges conduct that meets the statutory definition of unprofessional conduct and is deemed credible, the VCJC Executive Director will forward your complaint to the officer’s employing agency for investigation; or, in limited circumstances, the PRS will undertake an investigation itself.  By law, the VCJC Executive Director must refer most complaints related to an officer (who is not the agency head) to the officer’s employing agency for investigation.  Please note that the PRS does not have the authority to investigate allegations of misconduct against individuals who do not receive a certification from the VCJC, such as employees of the Department of Corrections (DOC).
