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, 57 N. Ottawa Street (in downtown Joliet) on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays from 1:30-4:00 p.m. The reception area is on the first floor after the security check point. Please leave your cellular phones in your vehicle. Because there are courtrooms in the building, security officers will not allow the public to bring in cellular phones with cameras.
For more information, call (815) 727-8453.
