File a Police ComplaintThe Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) takes complaints seriously. The Police Services Act (PSA) identifies acceptable mediums for making a complaint about police policy, service or conduct. Effective October 19, 2009, the PSA was amended to create the Office of the Independent Police Review Director (OIPRD), which will oversee all public complaints about policing in Ontario.
To file a complaint that occurred after 19 October, 2009 please complete the OIPRD forms located on the OIPRD website or attend any police agency in Ontario to obtain the forms. Any police location in Ontario may receive complaints in relation to any police service in this province, not including First Nations Police Services. Complaints about First Nations Police Services must be made directly to the service in question. Completed and signed forms can be mailed, faxed or delivered to any OPP detachment to be forwarded to OIPRD or may be sent directly to:
