Misconduct Concerns

Calgary Police Service Misconduct Concerns

On average, about 0.2 per cent of the interactions we have with the public result in conduct concerns being raised. These concerns are raised by the public, partner agencies, other police officers, supervisors or our leadership. 

The vast majority of these concerns are dealt with informally, typically by explaining police procedures, facilitating an informal conversation between involved parties, or by the officer’s supervisor addressing the issue. These informal resolutions allow citizens to learn why officers respond the way they do and provide officers with immediate feedback if they have made a mistake.

Around 10 per cent of misconduct concerns require a formal investigation and disciplinary process to properly be resolved. 

To learn more about the process of reporting a concern or filing a formal complaint, please visit our concerns about misconduct page. 


Annual Statistical Reports show how many complaints, concerns and compliments we receive each year. They also show how these files were addressed by the Professional Standards Section and Chief Constable:
