How to make a complaint
The LECC encourages members of the public and public officials to report suspected serious misconduct or serious maladministration involving the NSW Police Force or NSW Crime Commission.
Anyone can report allegations of misconduct or maladministration to the LECC and you can do so anonymously if you wish. If you do provide contact details, then the LECC will be in touch to let you know it has received your complaint, and then subsequently to inform you of its decision.
If you have information about Police or Crime Commission misconduct, you should pass it on to the LECC. Timely reporting helps the LECC to deal effectively with the conduct and prevent future misconduct.

Our secure online complaint form is an easy and efficient way to report serious misconduct or maladministration.
