Complaints against the police –
Office of the Police Ombudsman to be replaced by the Office for Public Integrity
From 4 September 2017 the Office of the Police Ombudsman will close and the responsibility for the oversight of complaints against the police will transfer to the Office for Public Integrity (OPI). This will have no practical effect on any complaint made between now and the date of the transfer. Those complaints which have not been dealt with and finalised by the Office of the Police Ombudsman by 4 September 2017 will automatically become the subject of oversight by the OPI.
