  2. Civilian Complaint Form

    The Woodland Police Department realizes it must be responsive to input from the civilians in our community. The Department encourages civilians to report what they believe to be any acts of police misconduct. The complaint must be made in good faith, and we pledge to respond swiftly, thoroughly, and fairly to any such reports. Not all contacts with the police are of an unfavorable nature that would cause a complaint to be made. The greater majority of our contacts involve public assistance, information or, in some cases, life-saving actions by a police officer. The Woodland Police Department is constantly seeking ways to improve our relationship with the community. We have pledged ourselves to provide professional and dedicated police service. To help us maintain this objective, we sincerely appreciate your comments. Derrek Kaff, Chief of Police
