The Dallas County Precinct 5 Constable’s Office thoroughly investigates all complaints filed against department personnel. Maintaining public trust is the highest mandate of law enforcement and allegations of misconduct are taken seriously by Constable Beth Villarreal. It is important that members of the public are confident their complaints will be addressed quickly and impartially, with the same level of professionalism they have come to expect from the Dallas County Precinct 5 Constable’s Office.
If you wish to file a complaint against a member of our personnel, you may do so with any departmental supervisor. The supervisor will listen to your complaint and forward it to the administrative offices where it will be assigned for investigation. If your complaint is against a peace officer, Texas law requires you to formalize it by making a written, signed statement. Texas law also requires that the officer being complained on is provided a copy of the complaint against them. Complaints alleging criminal activity on the part of the employee will be investigated by the Dallas County Constable Pct. 5 Internal Affairs Division and when appropriate, may be referred to the Public Integrity Division of the Dallas County District Attorney’s Office. Complaints involving procedural or policy issues are normally investigated and handled by the employee’s supervisor. You will be notified of the status of your complaint and the outcome of the investigation.
If you have any questions about filing a complaint or where to submit your complaint, feel free to contact the Lieutenant of the Internal Affairs Division at 214-819-7536, or any Dallas County Constable Pct. 5 supervisor at 214-943-1765.
