The North Tonawanda Police Department takes complaints against its personnel seriously.  If you have cause to complain about the behavior of an officer, there are many options available to you.  All complaints, regardless of how received, will be investigated.


In writing: You may write to Captain T. Bush or Chief R. Zgolak at 216 Payne Avenue, North Tonawanda, NY  14120.  You should include:  your name, phone number, address and a very complete and detailed account of the occurrence.  You will likely be contacted with follow-up questions.


By phone: You may call Captain T. Bush at (716) 692-4119.  The best times for reaching them are between 7am and 3pm.  If there is no answer, please feel free to leave a short message and they will get back to you as soon as possible.


In person: You may stop at the front desk of Police Headquarters and ask for a Lieutenant.  You will be required to briefly explain your situation to the Desk Officer.  This option is not typically recommended as our Lieutenants are frequently on patrol with their officers and may not be available at the time of your visit.


Depending on the nature of the alleged actions, you may be asked to file a formal complaint.  You will be required to sign the complaint under oath.  Anonymous complaints will still be investigated, however, the fact that there is no signed accusation will be considered during the investigation.
