Office of the Independent Police Review Director
655 Bay Street|
The Office of the Independent Police Review Director (OIPRD) is an independent civilian oversight agency that handles public complaints of police conduct in the province of Ontario, Canada. The agency oversees all police forces, from municipal levels up to and including the Ontario Provincial Police.
Created in 2008 under the Independent Police Review Act 2007 (which replaced Part V of the Police Services Act), the agency is staffed by members in regional offices around the province and headquartered in Toronto. Like the Special Investigations Unit, it reports to the Attorney General of Ontario rather than the Minister of Community Safety and Correctional Services.
Members of the agency cannot be serving police officers, and the director cannot be a former or current police officer.
