Of course, with anonymity comes the concern of false reports, but the oversight office does have a safeguard in place for that.

"When we get a complaint that comes in, we look into it. We look into bodycam video, police reports and we're going to do an assessment of it before we recommend that it be investigated," said Farah Muscadin, who is the director of the oversight office.
