Who are the IOPC?
The IOPC oversees the police complaints system in England and Wales. We investigate the most serious matters, including deaths following police contact, and set out the standards by which the police should handle complaints. We use learning from our work to influence changes in policing.
We are independent, and make out decisions entirely independently of the police and government. Independent Office for Police Conduct

Equality – Positive Action
At the IOPC, we are committed to building a workforce which reflects the diversity of the communities in which we serve. A more inclusive workforce enables us to be a more effective and efficient organisation, better understand and respond to the needs of our communities. Our workforce profile data shows that people who identify as black, Asian and minority ethnic are under-represented at the IOPC so for this role we will be using positive action when selecting candidates.
