    Anyone been through the complaint process for MKE police? I'd like to at least get on the record against the cop who took my gun at Grand Ave mall.

    try this website, it details the process. I would not go into the department and ask for a form. things have gone badly for others that have tried that route.

    Use Wisc. Statutes Chapter 19, General Duties of Public Officials and make the request for the form a 'FOIA' request.

    19.31 Declaration of policy. In recognition of the fact that a representative government is dependent upon an informed electorate, it is declared to be the public policy of this state that all persons are entitled to the greatest possible information regarding the affairs of government and the official acts of those officers and employees who represent them. Further, providing persons with such information is declared to be an essential function of a representative government and an integral part of the routine duties of officers and employees whose responsibility it is to provide such information. To that end, ss. 19.32 to 19.37 shall be construed in every instance with a presumption of complete public access, consistent with the conduct of governmental business. The denial of public access generally is contrary to the public interest, and only in an exceptional case may access be denied.
    Wrap yourself in the law like armor.

    I don't think that you'll have a problem going to the PD for a form. Fox 6 did a report on their complaint additudes and busted several of the districts out for their unwillingness to give citizens complaint forms. Bring your voice recorder JIC. If they give you any flak, send it to the press.
