How to File Complaints against the Broward County Sheriff's Office

OpenPolice.org is an independent project developed by Flex Your Rights, a 501(c)(3) educational nonprofit.

We recommend you start by preparing a transparent misconduct report on OpenPolice.org. Then use the information below to submit a formal complaint to the Broward County Sheriff's Office.

You can submit your complaint through this agency's online complaint form. Include the public link to your OpenPolice.org complaint. And if possible, attach your OpenPolice.org PDF, which we will send you.

If you submit your complaint on paper, we recommend that you staple a copy of your full OpenPolice.org complaint together with the department form.
