|| Legal Redress Chairman: David Scott
The legal redress committee is comprised of members with nearly 75 years of combined service in Law, the Criminal Justice System and Law Enforcement.
A member of this committee meets with John Norris, Cheltenham Township Police Chief, on a regular basis, and members of the committee occasionally attend municipal court hearings to ensure that members of the community are being treated with fairness and respect. Representatives from the Police Departments of Cheltenham, Jenkintown, Springfield, Plymouth and Whitemarsh Townships, attend our general body meetings, in an effort to keep our membership informed on matters of mutual interest.
Your Complaint form: Although you may have contacted The NAACP Cheltenham Area Branch via email or by phone, your complaint has not been formally submitted. You must submit a formal complaint form (a form may be provided by the town the alleged infraction took place) to your local police department ASAP (30 days for most Jurisdictions). Also attach a copy of this complaint form to a memo stating your concerns and or complaint to your local NAACP Branch President and to the NAACP National legal department.
Your NAACP Legal Department appreciates your complaint. However, due to the volume of complaints received, the Legal Department may not be able to personally respond to each complaint it receives and your complaint does not create an attorney client relationship.
Submission of a complaint does not mean that the NAACP National legal department has accepted your case. You should consult an attorney regarding your case as soon as possible because there may be certain filing deadlines that must be adhered too in order to file a case in court.
