From the 1 February 2020, the Police and Crime Commissioner (PCC) became the relevant review body for conducting independent reviews of police complaints (previously known as “appeals”), where the Independent Office of Police Conduct (IOPC) is not the relevant review body.

If you are unsure of who to submit your application for a review please contact us by email at info@southyorkshire-pcc.gov.uk or ringing 0114 2964150.
