Citizen Commend/Complaint Information Form

The members of the Amity Township Police Department are committed to providing law enforcement services that are fair, effective and impartially applied. It is in the best interests of everyone that your complaint about the performance of an individual officer is resolved fairly and promptly.

The Police Department has formal procedures for investigating your complaint. These procedures ensure fairness and protect the rights of both citizens and police officers. All complaints against police officers are thoroughly investigated. You will be advised in writing of the outcome of the investigation. Your complaint will be sent to a superior officer who will conduct a thorough and objective investigation.

                           You might be asked to assist in the investigation by giving a detailed statement about what happened or providing other important information.

                            If our investigation shows that a crime was committed, the county prosecutor will be notified. You might be asked to testify in court.

                            If our investigation results in an officer being charged with a violation of department rules, you might be asked to testify in a department hearing.

                            If our investigation shows that the complaint was unfounded or that the officer acted properly, the matter will be closed. 

It is unlwaful to provide information in this matter, which you do not believe to be true. 

You may call the Chief of Police, Andrew J. Kensey at 610-689-6002 with any additional information or any questions about the case.
