The following is an easy-to-use form of communication to tell the Wilmington Police Department about your interactions with our police officers. We hope all of your experiences are good ones and that you’ll take a moment to send a note of commendation to thank an officer for doing something positive that was either part of their daily duties or something above-and-beyond their mission.

We also know that police and community interactions don’t always go as well as the police and community would like, so this same form can be used to tell us why the Department should review the actions of an officer due to some sort of negative behavior or action.

Either way, it’s important that we hear from you and that we continue to communicate. Thank you.

Please correct the field(s) marked in red below:
