The Citizens' Police Complaint Office (CPCO) is an office, independent of the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department, created by City Ordinance. It affords citizens of Indianapolis who believe they have been treated improperly by an IMPD officer the opportunity to have their complaints articulated and investigated.

The Citizens' Police Complaint Board is a twelve member board consisting of nine civilian voting members and three non-voting police officers. These members are appointed by the City-County Council, the Mayor, and the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) and have the task of reviewing all cases filed in the CPCO.   CPCB CPCO Brochure.pdf
