When the Commissioner rejects or dismisses a complaint following a preliminary analysis, a lack of cooperation from the complainant during conciliation, following a failure in conciliation or during an investigation, the complainant may have this decision reviewed by submitting new facts or elements within 15 days.

If the Commissioner overturns his initial decision, he may render the decision that best suits the stage at which the complaint has reached.

The Commissioner's decisions are justified in writing and sent to the parties as well as to the director of the police service or to the employer of the peace officers concerned.
