OCPC is headed by a Chair (currently David C. Gavsie) and 8 other members.[2] Some board members have legal backgrounds while others have public service experience.


OCPC handles complaints involving police conduct that do not result in a serious injury or death in the province or has been sent to OCPC from local police agencies. All other cases are investigated by the Special Investigations Unit.[3]
