Utah State Code Public Safety Statute

Click here to reference the Utah State Code Public Safety Statute which establishes POST’s authority to investigate peace officer misconduct and outlines the misconduct for which a peace officer may be investigated- Utah Code Title 53 Chapter 6 Part 2 Section 211

 

Please note: As a citizen, you are encouraged to contact Peace Officer Standards and Training if you have a complaint about the actions of a peace officer or dispatcher, if you believe their conduct was inappropriate or if you believe they have violated the law. Although we encourage citizens to report police misconduct, complaints must be made in good faith. False or highly exaggerated complaints serve no good purpose for either citizens, peace officers or dispatcher’s, and only tend to thwart our complaint investigation process. Anyone who willfully makes any false accusation for the purpose of discrediting a peace officer or dispatcher may be prosecuted under Utah State Criminal Code 76-8-504.5 for a Class A misdemeanor.
