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. This is a fairly simple explanation of misconduct. More information on misconduct is available at the CCC website.
How do I make a complaint?
For information on how to make a complaint about misconduct contact the CCC on (08) 9215 4888 or 1800 809 000.
What is the Parliamentary Inspector?
The Office of the Parliamentary Inspector of the Corruption and Crime Commission accepts and can investigate allegations of misconduct by the Corruption and Crime Commission.
What legal assistance is available for public officers called as witnesses or served with notices or summonses by the CCC or the Parliamentary Inspector?
The WA Government has established a fund to provide legal assistance for serving and former public officers called as witnesses or served with notices or summonses by the CCC or the Parliamentary Inspector.
Legal Aid WA manages this fund for the WA Government and assesses all applications for aid for matters before the CCC.
