How do I make a complaint on a member of the Lady Lake Police Department?

If you feel an officer acted improperly, there are two ways to make a complaint. If you know who the employee’s supervisor is, you may contact him/her directly by telephoning 352-751-1565. If you do not know who the supervisor is, but know the officer’s name, the call taker can tell you who the officer’s supervisor is. Remember, our officers and supervisors work various shifts, and you may be directed to the supervisor’s voice mail. Leave a message and the supervisor will get back with you.

If you feel the complaint is too serious to be handled by the supervisor, or is a complaint regarding criminal conduct on the employee’s part, you may contact our Operations Lieutenant 352-751-1567.

My firearm was taken by the Lady Lake Police Department, can I get it back?

If your firearm was taken as evidence or as part of an injunction you must get a court order signed by a judge specifically stated for the release of the firearm.  This is also dependant on a background check.  Additionally, Florida State Statutes require that any pistol or firearm taken by any officer with a search warrant or without a search warrant upon a view by the officer of a breach of the peace shall not be returned except pursuant to an order of a circuit judge or a county court judge.
