File a Citizen Complaint

The Olmsted County Sheriff’s Office welcomes valid complaints about its service or personnel. Your constructive comments provide an open channel of communication between the Sheriff’s Office and the community, which enables us to maintain the highest possible standards.

Note: A disagreement over the validity of a traffic citation is not a complaint. Such disagreements should be directed to the proper court having jurisdiction in the matter. A complaint about detention center procedures should be submitted to the Director of the Adult Detention Center via appropriate channels.
