If you’ve called the police and made a complaint, and your local police department feels no criminal charges apply, you may still have a course of action.
In the event you disagree with the decision of your local law enforcement agency, it may be possible to discuss your case one-on-one with an Assistant State’s Attorney. Walk-In Complaints are considered at the Will County State’s Attorney’s Office, 121 N. Chicago Street (in downtown Joliet) on Tuesday’s, Thursday’s and Friday’s from 1:30 - 4:00 p.m. For more information, call 815-727-8453.
Our Ethical Obligation
The Office of the State’s Attorney ethically can not act as your attorney unless we file criminal charges. Therefore, if our office is unable to file a charge, we will provide you with a complete explanation as well as advice regarding small claims court.
