The Human Rights Commission
Please think about lodging a complaint with the human rights commission first and foremost. The Australian Human Rights Commission investigates and conciliates complaints about discrimination and breaches of human rights.
Those who have been mistreated by police in most states have three main options open to them
The first is an ‘internal complaint’ to the Police Force itself. This requires you to provide as much information as possible to the police themselves. That pathway is notorious for bringing about an outcome which is favourable to police – after all, police are essentially investigating themselves. The second option is to make a complaint to the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission (LECC), which receives thousands of complaints against police each year and is hopelessly under-resourced. What’s more, the LECC does not have the power to discipline police or make a costs order in a complainant’s favour. The third option is to consider making a civil claim against the NSW Police Force.
A complaint about the NSW Police Force or its employees can be made to the Commissioner of Police or the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission (LECC).
- To lodge a formal complaint with the Commissioner of Police you must do so in writing.
- You must lodge your complaint online, OR complete the Complaint Form (PDF) AND:
To lodge a formal complaint with the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission (LECC) go to www.lecc.nsw.gov.au The Law Enforcement Conduct Commission is an independent statutory body responsible for investigating complaints against the police. It has its own independent investigators for these cases. Some less serious complaints will be referred to the police for investigation but, these will be monitored by the Commission’s own staff.
In most circumstances complaints received by the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission will be referred to the NSW Police Force to investigate (subject to the oversight of the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission).
