Most police departments have forms you can obtain either online or by contacting the department to file a formal complaint. If your complaint rises to the level of a law suit, you would need to file specific paperwork. This procedure puts the agency on notice through the county, city, or state government that runs the agency. Typically, you have six months from the date of injury to file this notice.
