The Police Ombudsman’s Office is continuing to respond to the ongoing pandemic by implementing measures to minimise the impact on our work and reduce health risks.
Although the Office remains closed to the public, new complaints can be made by email, in writing and via our website.
The Police Ombudsman, Marie Anderson, has said that claims the police handling of ‘Black Lives Matter’ protests and a counter demonstration earlier this year amounted to unfairness and discrimination are justified.
