How to Lodge a Complaint
To lodge a complaint, it is required that a name, address, and phone number be provided as well as a description of the location (address) and alleged offense. This information is kept confidential, but is subject to the provisions of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act. Complaints can be in writing or phoned in. Although most investigations are concluded within a few days, it is difficult to predict the duration.
