Submitting a Complaint

If you have a complaint regarding a municipal police officer or department, you may complete and submit the form below.  This will entitle you to various rights under the Police Act, including:

  • Participating in a mediation session or informal resolution
  • Being kept informed of the progress of the investigation
  • Receiving a concluding report
  • Given the opportunity to make submissions on what you feel are appropriate disciplinary or corrective measures
  • If not satisfied with the outcome, the ability to appeal the decision

If you simply want the police department and the OPCC to know about your concerns, but do not wish to participate in the formal complaint process, you may file a “Non‐Registered Complaint” directly with the originating police department. Depending on the information provided, it may or may not result in an investigation and you will not have the same rights as set out above.

If you would like further information about the Police Act, click here, and if you would like more information about the Complaint Process, click here or call us at 1 (877) 999-8707.

There are also a wide variety of Support Groups available to assist you through the complaint process.  For help finding the right support group for your needs, please call our office at 1 (877) 999-8707 and ask for the Support Group Co-ordinator.

On the on-line complaint form, the * indicates this information is required in order to process your complaint. Please be as precise as possible.
