Welcome to the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner’s website. As Police Complaint Commissioner for the Province of British Columbia, my primary focus is to increase public confidence in the police complaint process.

An effective tool for improving transparency and accountability is information. It is my hope that all stakeholders will find this website to be an informative and valuable resource.

I, and members of my staff, remain committed to ensuring that the police complaint process in British Columbia continues to improve and meet the needs of both the public and policing community.
