MyPoliceRapport.org a collaboration with OpenPolice USA

We recommend you start by preparing a transparent misconduct report on MyPoliceRapport.org. Then use the information below to submit a formal complaint to the Independent Office for Police Conduct.


Independent Office for Police Conduct

This is the agency that collects complaints against the Durham Constabulary. It's where we recommend that MyPoliceRapport.org users file their formal complaints.

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

  • Only complaints submitted on station forms will be investigated.
  • Complaints submitted by phone will be investigated.
  • Complaints submitted by postal mail will be investigated. Send using Royal Mail Signed For® 1st Class.
