Request for review

To do so, you must complete an online request for review form.
  • When a complaint is dismissed after investigation, an application for remission may be made to the Tribunal administratif de déontologie policière within 30 days of notification of the Commissioner's decision. In this case, you must make the request by completing the form and submitting it to the office of the Tribunal administratif de déontologie policière.
