Do you have a complaint about the police in British Columbia?

The Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner promotes accountable policing within our communities through impartial, transparent civilian oversight. We are here to inform, advise, and assist anyone involved in the municipal police complaints process.

Message from the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner

Welcome to the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner for British Columbia. As part of our mandate to provide independent oversight of police conduct, we seek to be accessible to all British Columbians.

Policing in Canada finds its foundation on a bedrock of public trust.  Maintaining that trust is achieved in large measure by ensuring the police conduct themselves in a manner reflective of the values and expectations of the diverse communities they serve.  We at the OPCC strive to listen closely to the voices of all British Columbians so that we may best serve the public interest in furtherance of accountable, transparent and compassionate policing.

This website is one place to learn about our office and the work we do therefore we look forward to hearing from British Columbians.  Please contact us at: if you have comments or feedback. 



Our office is located on the unceded traditional lands of the Lək̓ʷəŋən (Lekwungen) People and ancestors and our work extends across the homelands of the Indigenous peoples within what we now call British Columbia. We honour the many territorial keepers of the lands and waters where we work.
