The Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner is mandated to compile statistical information about the following information:
- Demographical information in respect of persons who file a complaint against a municipal police officer;
- Information about the number and frequency of complaints and investigations;
- Information about the different types or classes of complaints and investigations and the outcome or resolution of them; and
- Any trends that are identified in the above.
The OPCC is also required to release this statistical information at least annually to the public. In order to ensure the public has timely access to this information, the OPCC releases statistical reports each quarter.
We will continue to improve on the nature and quality of information reported to the public in these reports in order to aid research and the development of improvements to the oversight process in BC.
