Illinois State Law, Complaint Against Police Officers (50 ILCS 725/3.8 (b)), requires “Anyone filing a complaint against a sworn peace officer must have the complaint supported by a sworn affidavit. Any complaint, having been supported by a sworn affidavit, and having been found, in total or in part, to contain knowingly false material information, shall be presented to the appropriate State’s Attorney for a determination of prosecution. (Source: P.A. 97-472, eff. 8-22- 11.)”. This means you must prepare an Affidavit signed by a Notary Public. This document must be the original document.
Illinois Compiled Statutes, section 720 ILCS 5/26-1(4), states it is a criminal offense for any person to knowingly furnish false information or to transmit false information to a public officer knowing there are no reasonable grounds that such offense has been committed.
Transmits or causes to be transmitted in any manner to any peace officer, public officer or public employee a report to the effect that an offense will be committed, is being committed, or has been committed, knowing at the time of the transmission that there is no reasonable ground for believing that the offense will be committed, is being committed, or has been committed;
