Duty Complaint Form

The United States Attorney’s Office prosecutes violations of federal criminal law and represents federal agencies in civil actions and can only pursue matters that fall within that authority.

Almost all complaints or allegations of crime made to our office get referred to another agency for investigation.  Your complaint will be more efficiently processed if you go directly to the appropriate agency.  For a listing of local addresses of federal agencies, visit

If you would still prefer to contact our office directly regarding your complaint, please use the web form below.  The information you provide will be submitted via email to the duty paralegal who will conduct an initial review.  If warranted, an Assistant United States Attorney will also review your complaint.  To follow up on your complaint, please call (617) 748-3100 (dial 0 for operator), and ask to speak to the duty paralegal.
