There are three avenues under the Police Act for adjudicative review. If the Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner disagrees with a decision about misconduct or appropriate disciplinary/corrective measures recommended by the police department, the OPCC can appoint a retired judge to review the matter and come to a determination.

There are three types of adjudicative review:

  1. Section 117 Review
  2. Review on the Record
  3. Public Hearing

All adjudicative decisions deemed final and conclusive pursuant to the Police Act, may still be subject to Judicial Review.

The Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner may make these determinations and decision available to the public. The OPCC may sever any information that is protected under Division 2 or Part 2 of the Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act.
