Police Complaints

Redaction of Complaint Files

We do not publish citizen names and contact information online. However, we must have the original complete documents, which may contain that information. We will create a redacted copy with personal data about the citizen removed for publishing. We do keep a full copy of the unredacted complaint in our database, but we do not share these with the public. Only authorized Police Complaints staff and partners has access to this information. Of course, keep in mind that these are public documents and therefore any member of the public can obtain a copy by making their own IPRA demand.
