The LaSalle County State’s Attorney’s Office offers citizens, who may have been victimized by criminal conduct, the opportunity to file an informal criminal complaint.
Someone has committed a criminal act against me, where can I go for help? The first place to always go when someone has committed a criminal act against you is your local police department. Contact your local police department and indicate that you wish to sign a criminal complaint or make a report relating to a possible criminal offense. If your complaint is an emergency dial 911.
The police department will not pursue with criminal charges, is there anything else that I can do? Unfortunately, every incident that you may become involved with does not result in the police initiating a criminal charge. This may happen if the situation is “civil” in nature (the matter must be handled in civil court) or there is not enough evidence to pursue a criminal charge.
I have a consumer complaint, who can help me? Typically consumer complaints fall under the jurisdiction of the Illinois Attorney General. Consumer or business complaints will be deferred to the Illinois Attorney General Consumer Protection Division. If you wish to contact the Illinois Attorney General they can be reached at (312) 814-3000.
