Office of the Police Commissioner

The Office of the Police Commissioner was established in order to provide independent oversight of municipal police services, the University of Prince Edward Island security service, conservation officers and the Atlantic Police Academy. Where a person has had an encounter with a member of one of these services which they believe violates the Code of Conduct that person can complain to either the chief officer of that service or to the Office of the Police Commissioner.

The Office, when directed by the Minister, also ensures that the services mentioned in the Police Act comply with Ministerial Directives regarding the manner of delivery and quality of police services.
