Public Complaints 

 The Police Commission is empowered to oversee the complaints process and receive complaints from the public.
The Commission appoints a Public Complaints Monitor who is responsible for:
  • 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
  • Receiving complaints from the public

Under the Alberta Police Act, the responsibility for the investigation of complaints against Police Service policies and services provided, as well as against specific police 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. The Commission’s role is to ensure the process is fair to all parties.
