State law requires that complaints involving police officers be sworn under oath and notarized. For your convenience, a complaint form (PDF) can be picked up in the lobby of the Alvarado Police Department (600 S Parkway, Alvarado TX 76009) or printed from the web-page. It does not require an appearance at the police department. Complaints against members of the Alvarado Police Department may be initiated in person to a supervisor or officer in charge, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. They may also be made in person at the Alvarado Police Department, which is open Monday through Friday, 8 am to 5 pm (except during City holidays). There is also the option of filling out the form, getting it notarized, and then mailing it to the address above.
