We are independent of the Police and the Government. We make findings based on fact and we do not take directions from the Police or anyone else when we make those findings.
If you have made a complaint to the Police it will be referred to the Authority. We are the designated body to oversee all complaints made about the Police.
Our service is free – it does not cost you anything to make a complaint.
If you wish to make, or have made, a complaint you may find the questions and answers listed below helpful in understanding the role of the Independent Police Conduct Authority and the process involved in considering your complaint.
