Checklist for RCMP members

Prior to filing a public complaint, please advise the complainant of the following:

  • Complaints can be filed independently with the Civilian Review and Complaints Commission (CRCC);
  • The public complaint process can be accessed through the CRCC's website www.complaintscommission.ca;
  • Pursuant to subsection 45.53(10) of the RCMP Act, information provided on completed complaint forms will be forwarded to the RCMP as part of the public complaint process; and,
  • An RCMP investigator may contact them to obtain a statement or further information related to their complaint.

Ensure that the complaint concerns:

  • the conduct of an RCMP officer in the performance of their policing duties.
  • and

  • an incident that occurred within the last 12 months.

    If the incident occurred more than 12 months ago, please advise the individual making the complaint that they will need to provide additional information / justification for the delay in order to determine if a time extension will be granted.

Ensure that the individual making the complaint is:

  • directly involved in the incident
  • or

  • a witness to the incident
  • or

  • a person authorized to act on behalf of the person directly involved in the incident
