Briefings To Incoming Ministers Released

Our Briefing to the Incoming Minister (BIM) report is a formal document that is provided to our new Minister when they take up their portfolio. The BIM helps to give the new Minister an overview of what the Independent Police Conduct Authority does, its current position, any specific challenges faced by the Authority, and strategic objectives that the Authority may seek to achieve during the Minister's term.

The Authority has recently produced its 2020 Annual Report, which will be tabled in Parliament when the House resumes sitting in 2021. The report covers the period from 1 July 2019 to 30 June 2020. It is normally tabled earlier but its completion was delayed due to the extended audit timeframes as a result of the impact of Covid-19.
