Public complaints

The commission oversees the citizen complaints process and appoints a public complaints monitor, who is responsible for:

  • Receiving complaints from the public
  • Providing an independent review of the citizen complaint process
  • Auditing police service files involving public complaints to ensure investigations are fair and thorough
  • Reporting their findings directly to the commission

Making complaints against the police service

Under the Alberta Police Act, the responsibility for the investigation of complaints against police service policies and services provided, and those against specific officers, lies with the Chief of Police. The commission does not have the authority to alter the Chief’s decision regarding complaints about a police officer’s actions. Its role is to ensure the process is fair to all parties.
