Unsubstantiated & False Complaints

What happens when a complaint is not substantiated? If there is not sufficient evidence to support the allegation, the investigation is closed and no further action is taken.

False Complaints

Please be aware that making a false complaint against a police employee is a violation of the Texas Penal Code, section 37.02. A person convicted of making a false claim can be fined up to $2,000 and/or risk confinement in jail up to one year.
