Once accepted, your complaint form will be forwarded to the Office of Professional Standards for review and investigation. Once the investigation is complete, you will be advised of the outcome in writing by mail. Complaints from the public, whether substantiated or not, increase the awareness of the leadership of this agency to actual or potential problems, as well as the perceptions of the community. This feedback will ultimately assist in determining whether the mission statement and goals of this agency are being attained. All conclusions are then reported annually to the Atlantic County Prosecutor’s Office.
