How Do I File a Complaint on a Jehovah's Witness?

Jehovah's Witnesses are a sect of the Christian faith who are perhaps best known for their door-to-door sales tactics to raise money for their churches and their organisation.

As with most religious organisations, the Jehovah's Witnesses have been the focus of controversy about their beliefs, their refusal of blood transfusions during medical emergencies and their perceived lack of appropriate response in the handling of child molestation charges within their church. If a Jehovah's Witness acts inappropriately or makes an unwelcome visit to your home, you have several options in filing a complaint against him.

Call your local Jehovah's Witness church to complain of a particular member's behaviour. If you are unsure of where a local church is, check the phonebook, run an online search or call 411.

Contact the home office for the Jehovah's Witnesses. You can request a phone call on their main website and they will use the information fields to call you back. The site says specifically that e-mails will not be responded to or looked at.

Write the home office of the Jehovah's Witnesses at 25 Columbia Heights, Brooklyn, NY 11201-2483. Include a detailed summary of why you are complaining, who the church member was and what the circumstances were surrounding your interaction. Include your contact information if you wish to receive a response, though there is no guarantee one will be provided.

Call the local police department if you are complaining about illegal behaviour or activity. Jehovah's Witnesses are bound by the same laws as everyone else and can be arrested for law violations if evidence supports your claims.
