Police complaints change coming

Later this year, significant changes to the way complaints about South Australian police officers are managed will be implemented.

The changes have come about as a result of the South Australian Parliament introducing new legislation governing these complaints. The Police Complaints and Discipline Act 2016 was drafted in response to recommendations made by the Independent Commissioner Against Corruption in his review of the legislative scheme that governs the oversight and management of complaints about police.

The new legislative scheme, which is expected to come into effect on 4 September 2017, aims to manage complaints about police in a more efficient, effective and appropriate manner.

At present you can make a complaint about police to the Office for Public Integrity (OPI), SAPOL or the Police Ombudsman.

Under the new scheme, the Office of the Police Ombudsman will be abolished, and oversight of police complaints will shift to the OPI.

Come 4 September 2017, all new complaints must be directed to either the OPI or SAPOL. Oversight of any open complaints previously being dealt with by the Police Ombudsman will automatically transfer to the OPI.

To make a complaint about police or any public officer, contact the OPI on 8207 1777 or complete the online form.
