Welcome to our township!

Commendation and Complaint Form


Thank you for taking time to let us know your thoughts about the Montgomery Township Police Department and the service we provide to our community. Community policing depends on a working partnership between the police and the citizens we serve.

A citizen commendation or complaint causes the department to examine the services that we provide to our community and to make improvements, if necessary, in the way we provide those services. We are committed to improving our service to the community and appreciate any input from its citizens.

J. Scott Bendig
Chief of Police



Once a commendation is received, it will be forwarded to the Chief of Police, the commended officer's supervisor, and the individual officer. The commendation will also be entered into the officer's personnel file. The officer will be notified that your commendation was received.


The Montgomery Township Police Department will investigate all complaints made against department personnel. To ensure public trust and to maintain the Montgomery Township Police Department's integrity, an immediate, thorough, objective, and unbiased investigation of official misconduct will be investigated. The investigation will be conducted by the supervisor of the officer or employee who is the subject of the complaint.

You will be contacted by the investigator to review your complaint. As part of the investigation, the investigator will also speak with witnesses and members of the Montgomery Township Police Department who may have observed what occurred. After the investigation is complete, you will be notified of the outcome, though you will not be informed of specific disciplinary actions taken.

Please note that this complaint will not affect any charges placed against you by an officer. Criminal and traffic charges must be resolved by the courts.
