Complaints not investigated

Most complaints are informally resolved, conciliated, or investigated. However, the Commissioner of Police may decide that a complaint should not be investigated or further investigated if:

  • the matter raised in the complaint is trivial; or
  • the complaint is frivolous or vexatious or is not made in good faith; or
  • the complaint has already been otherwise dealt with; or
  • having regard to all the circumstances of the case, the investigation or the continuance of the investigation of the matter raised in the complaint, is unnecessary or unjustifiable.

[Police Complaints and Discipline Act 2016 (SA) s 15]
