A copy of your complaint will be sent to Police. This is a legal requirement under section 16 of the Independent Police Conduct Authority Act 1988.
Our legislation says that we can't give out information collected during our assessment of a complaint. This includes information we receive from the Police.
We're not subject to the Official Information Act 1982 or the Privacy Act 1993.
If you'd like to receive copies of information held about you by Police, you need to request this directly on the Police website.
We publish the outcomes of some of our investigations. If we publish a report about your complaint, all the identifying information will be removed. For example, we'll use "Ms X" instead of your name unless it's already public.
