Ontario’s Inspector General of Policing

The Inspector General of Policing is a new policing oversight body under Ontario’s Community Safety and Policing Act, 2019. The Inspector General is responsible for ensuring policing is delivered adequately and effectively across Ontario and that police board members are complying with the Code of Conduct.

The Inspector General exercises independent compliance oversight to ensure police services, police service boards and board members, and special constable employers are complying with provincial laws and standards. The Inspector General of Policing is supported by the Inspectorate of Policing, a new organization comprised of professionals that are dedicated to driving improved performance in Ontario policing and police governance.

Members of the public can file complaints with the Inspector General concerning adequate and effective police service delivery, or allegations of police board member misconduct through our website: www.iopontario.ca.
