INDEPENDENT POLICE CONDUCT AUTHORITY

The Independent Police Conduct Authority is a statutory authority created to:

The Independent Police Conduct Authority IPCA (referred to as the IPCA or the Authority) is a civilian oversight body concerned with misconduct or neglect of duty by the Police. It also investigates incidents where death or serious bodily harm has occurred in the course of Police carrying out their duties, and it investigates allegations of serious misconduct reported by the Commissioner of Police.

The Authority is a person, and currently that person is a Judge. The Authority operates independently of the Police.

The PCA functions under the Independent Police Conduct Authority Act 1988.
