How to File a Complaint

OPR's jurisdiction is limited to reviewing allegations of misconduct made against Department of Justice attorneys and law enforcement personnel that relate to the attorneys' exercise of authority to investigate, litigate, or provide legal advice.

Forward complaints against DOJ employees to OPR in writing.  No forms are required, but the complaint should include:

  • the names and titles of the individuals suspected of misconduct,
  • the details of the allegations including case names,
  • any other relevant information,
  • copies of any documentation pertaining to the matter.
