Monitoring Project on IBAC: Police Misconduct Complaints

New monitoring project report published.

We completed a monitoring project resulting in a report on IBAC's process for assessing and determining police misconduct complaints under its former and current complaint management systems (CMS). The Inspectorate found that under IBAC's former CMS, an analysis of the substance and credibility of allegations of misconduct was not recorded in the majority of complaint files reviewed by the Inspectorate. The Inspectorate also found that there was a marked improvement in the recording of such analysis under its current CMS. The report makes recommendations about the recording of analysis by IBAC to enhance the transparency of IBAC's assessment and determination process. The Inspectorate made no findings as to whether IBAC's process met its statutory obligations.
