The Intake Officer receives complaints about the behavior of clergy and independently evaluates the appropriate course of action. When the Intake Officer deems it appropriate, they can and do refer cases to the Diocesan Disciplinary Board or to the appropriate law enforcement agency. Any person knowing or reasonably believing an offense may have been committed by a member of the clergy is encouraged to inform the Intake Officer. Additional information can be found in CANON XXII — Ecclesiastical Discipline — page 27 of the Constitution and Canons of The Diocese of West Missouri.
