The LECC is an independent agency that detects, investigates and exposes serious misconduct in the NSW Police Force and the NSW Crime Commission.
We investigate allegations of serious misconduct
We work with the New South Wales Police Force and the New South Wales Crime Commission to prevent misconduct by their officers, or maladministration by those agencies or their officers.
We consider these things when deciding whether to conduct an investigation:
- the conduct that happened or that might happen
- the seriousness of the alleged conduct
- the risk to any person, object or place
- the evidence to support the allegation
We can hold public or private examinations as part of an investigation. (An examination is a like a hearing but it can occur at any time during an investigation.)
If we have held an examination we will publish a report about our decision and any recommendations,
Those reports can be:
- public reports under section 132 of the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission Act 2016, or
- private reports under section 135 of the LECC Act.
Information about Current Investigations
We only disclose information about current investigations if it is in the public interest to do so.
Media releases and notifications about our examinations will be available on our website.
We may decide that it is appropriate to hold a public examination as part of an investigation.
We will usually publish transcripts of public examinations within 24 hours — unless suppression orders are in place.
