How to File a Complaint

There are checks and balances everywhere, for everyone.  On issues of compliance and enforcement, complaints can be filed about; unethical policies, compliance, OSHA concerns, or criminal practices.  Your local government has to answer for any manner of erroneous behavior.   From city hall to your local police and fire departments; you can submit complaints when you become aware of poor integrity, ethics, or the criminal behavior of any local leader.  Compliance refers to the act of adhering to the rules, regulations, and laws that have been set forth by a governing body.   Enforcement, on the other hand, refers to the act of ensuring that these rules, regulations, and laws are being followed.
