Complaints Against Police Practices

The Town of Landover Hills Maryland, Police Department, strives to provide fair and unbiased service to all persons that live, work, and visit the Town of Landover Hills. In most cases, if there is a question concerning the actions taken by a Landover Hills police officer, there are legal or procedural explanations. However, situations do arise when errors or omissions may occur. If we have not met your expectations or you believe an incident of misconduct by our personnel has occurred, we want to know about it. While every incident may not rise to the level of a formal complaint, we encourage you to express any concerns you may have to one of our supervisors.
