Reporting corruption or misconduct

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.

If you are a NSW public official who has information about members of the NSW Police Force or the NSW Crime Commission engaging in corrupt conduct, maladministration or serious and substantial waste of public money, you can make a public interest disclosure to the LECC under the Public Interest Disclosures Act 1994 (NSW) (PID Act). The PID Act provides legal protection to NSW public officials who make a disclosure, provided the disclosure meets the requirements of that Act. For information about making a public interest disclosure to the LECC, and the requirements and protections under the PID Act, see the document Making a Public Interest Disclosure to the Law Enforcement Conduct Commission.

The LECC Complaint Assessment Policy provides the framework to which the Commission will handle complaints made about the New South Wales Police Force and New South Wales Crime Commission.
