- an officer who is disgraceful, improper or unbecoming a police officer, or
- shows unfitness to be or continue as a police officer, or
- does not meet the standard the community reasonably
expects of a police officer.
If you are concerned about the conduct of a police officer and want to report it, consider whether the conduct is police misconduct or rather a customer service issue or minor breach of conduct.Examples of customer services issues or minor breaches include:
- a slow response to your call
- simple rudeness
- failure of an officer to identify him/herself.
- Exceptional circumstances. In specific exceptional circumstances, you may claim an exemption from reporting corruption via a statutory declaration. Claim an exemption under exceptional circumstances.
- Public interest disclosure. If you are a public interest discloser, you are not required to use a statutory declaration to report corruption. Make a public interest disclosure.
- Notification by public officials. Public officials who have a reasonable suspicion of corrupt conduct must notify the CCC (in accordance with ss. 38 and 40 of the Crime and Corruption Act 2001), but are not required to complete a statutory declaration. Notify the CCC.
- Provide information. If you choose to provide information about suspected corruption without a statutory declaration, the CCC may consider your information but may not be able to deal with your concerns. Provide information to the CCC.
