The Peace Officer Standards and Training (POST) Commission certifies police officers, which allows them to work in law enforcement in Massachusetts. The POST Commission can limit or revoke (cancel) an officer's certification if they haven't met certain requirements or if they engage in certain misconduct. To carry out that mission, the Commission is required to collect and review complaints about police officers. The information you provide helps us decide whether to limit or revoke certifications. Use this form to make a complaint about a police officer.
