Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner

The independent Office of the Police Complaint Commissioner (OPCC) has civilian oversight authority of the British Columbia Police Act for complaints against municipal police officers. The Police Act gives the Police Complaint Commissioner extensive authority and powers related to complaints against municipal police officers or the Police Department. A complaint can be made directly to the OPCC. Alternatively, a member of the public may wish to submit a Question or Concern regarding the conduct of a member. The Question or Concern form may be completed and forwarded to the OPCC or the Abbotsford Police Department. Participation in Police Act investigations by all persons is protected by the confidentiality provision of the Police Act.

The Professional Standards Section

The Professional Standards Section is an independent section within the Abbotsford Police Department that investigates allegations of police misconduct. Professional Standards Investigators conduct Police Act investigations with objectivity, fairness and openness. Assistance with making a Complaint, or submitting a Question or Concern form, concerning police officers or the Police Department, can be obtained by contacting any on-duty Abbotsford Police Department Professional Standards Investigator. Assistance can also be obtained through contact with the on-duty patrol supervisor 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
