While we believe the Evanston Police Department esteems strong values and strives every day to exceed expectations, interactions with our police force can create upsetting situations. This is why the Citizens Network of Protection has designed a procedure, born from civilian oversight, to help you process your interaction and if necessary, file a complaint.

Our procedure starts by filling out the request form below. We will then contact you to go over the story and review what happened against the current laws, city and department policies. At this point we will write up the report and you will decide if you want to file. If you do want to file, we will give you advice on filing with O.P.S. or legal.
