The Office of the Independent Police Review Director (OIPRD) is an arms-length agency of the Ontario Ministry of the Attorney General, staffed entirely by civilians.  This means the decisions by the OIPRD are independent from the Ontario government, the police and the community. 
 
The OIPRD is responsible for receiving, overseeing, monitoring and dealing with all public complaints against the police in Ontario. 
 
The OIPRD’s goal is to provide an independent, transparent, accessible and effective oversight system that will build confidence and trust in the public complaints process.
