Complaints to the CCC against public officers

What is the Corruption and Crime Commission?

The Corruption and Crime Commission (CCC) accepts and can investigate allegations of misconduct by WA public officers, including police officers and officers employed in local government.

What is misconduct?

Misconduct occurs when a public officer abuses their authority for personal gain, or to cause detriment to another person, or acts contrary to the public interest.

The CCC deals with allegations of serious misconduct.  Since 1 August 2015, allegations of minor misconduct are notified to the Public Sector Commission (PSC).
