FAQs

Will OIR handle my complaint?
OIR does not conduct its own investigations and recommends an individual complete a Personnel Complaint form and delivered to Orange County Sheriff's Department by mail or in person.

OIR is available as an intake mechanism for private individuals who have a concern or complaint about OCSD. OIR provides information and guidance to the public regarding Departmental processes and procedures, and monitors all cases that are ultimately referred to the Department for further actions.

OIR also coordinates with various public and private groups outside the Department to ensure that relevant issues are identified and addressed. These entities include key groups within County government (Board of Supervisors, County Counsel, District Attorney, County Executive Office, Human Resources, Human Relations Commission), employee unions, relevant federal agencies, and various community-based groups and individuals.
