- Step 1: Check that we are the right agency to handle your complaint
If your complaint does not concern official misconduct or police misconduct, we are probably not the appropriate agency to contact.
You can also visit the website It’s ok to complain for links to other independent complaint agencies.
- Step 2: Tell us the details
When reporting suspected misconduct, you do not need proof, you just need sufficient reason to believe that the misconduct has occurred.
To help us decide how best to deal with the matter, where possible please tell us:
- Your name (optional): You do not have to tell us your name, but be aware that anonymous complaints without detailed information are more difficult to investigate. So we can contact you for further information if necessary, or let you know the outcome of your complaint, please give us an alias, and a phone number, postal address or de-identified email address.
- the name, job title and workplace address of the person you suspect of misconduct
- details of relevant events, where and when (date and time) they happened
- who was involved
- the names of witnesses or other people who may be able to back up what you say
- any other supporting evidence (e.g. photographs, video footage or audio tape-recording, departmental correspondence, applications, contracts, accounts or diary notes)
- any steps you have taken to resolve the complaint
- if you have reported the matter to any other agency
- what action or outcome you would like to see as a result of your complaint.
- Step 3: Lodge your complaint

- use the online complaint lodgement form
