We can investigate complaints of corruption and police misconduct across the Victorian public sector, including Victoria Police. By law, we must prioritise serious or systemic corruption for investigation.
The Independent Broad-based Anti-corruption Commission (IBAC) is responsible for preventing and exposing public sector corruption and police misconduct in Victoria.
state and local government
the judiciary (for example, judges and the courts).
We do this by:
receiving complaints and notifications of public sector corruption and police misconduct
investigating and exposing serious corruption and police misconduct
raising awareness of the risks and impacts of corruption and police misconduct, and how to prevent it.
How IBAC benefits the community
We strengthen trust in the public sector and police.
We help strengthen integrity cultures and systems across Victoria.
We actively encourage everyone to be part of preventing corruption and misconduct.
We are independent
IBAC is accountable to all Victorians through the state parliament. However, we're completely independent of the government of the day. We take our obligations seriously, especially the way we use our significant powers.
Victoria's integrity system consists of three main independent agencies. The Victorian Inspectorate and Victorian Parliament oversee all three, in our collective aim to protect the integrity of Victoria's public sector and its police.
