Professional Conduct

The Police Department places great emphasis on the professional standards and conduct of our police officers. In order to insure excellence in policing for our community, the department will thoroughly investigate any complaints logged regarding inappropriate conduct. Complaints may be made anonymously or in person at MPD headquarters. Citizens may also call (617) 898-4801 and speak to any Duty Supervisor to initiate a complaint. We encourage all parties who may have a complaint to bring this directly to the department. We will however, also meet with any advocacy group who contacts us on behalf of a complainant.
