Integrity reports

As part of our monitoring oversight of a body’s performance of its duties or functions, or use of coercive powers, we may produce integrity reports and make recommendations or suggestions for improvement.


Before a document, like a report, can be made public it must first be provided to Parliament as a pdf for 'tabling'.

If you require a more accessible format, please call the Victorian Inspectorate on 1800 518 197 or email

If you are deaf and/or find it hard hearing or speaking with people who use a phone, the National Relay Service can help. Contact the National Relay Service on 133 677 or visit their website for more information.

IBAC: Police misconduct complaints

In October 2019, we completed a monitoring project resulting in a report on IBAC's process for assessing and determining police misconduct complaints under its former and current Complaint Management Systems (CMS).

We found that under IBAC's former CMS, an analysis of the substance and credibility of allegations of misconduct was not recorded in the majority of complaint files reviewed by the Inspectorate. We also found that there was a marked improvement in the recording of such analysis under its current CMS. The report makes recommendations about the recording of analysis by IBAC to enhance the transparency of IBAC's assessment and determination process.

Victorian Ombudsman interviews

In June 2019, we completed a monitoring project to assess whether witnesses in Ombudsman investigations are provided with sufficient information to make informed decisions about their participation in interviews with Ombudsman officers.

The report makes recommendations for the provision by Ombudsman officers of additional information during their initial telephone contact with, and in written material sent to, witnesses.
