Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission is a Federal Statutory Body established by an Act of Parliament, under Section 3 of Enforcement Agency Integrity Commission Act 2009 [Act 700] which was gazetted on 3 September 2009. The Act 700 was enforced on 1 April 2011.
This Act replaces the Independent Police Complaints and Misconduct Commission Bill 2005. The establishment of the Commission is in line with the Government's aim to inculcate and enhance integrity among enforcement officers and law enforcement agencies thus strengthening public confidence in them.
Since the Act came into force, the Commission has begun to carry out functions as provided in section 4 of Act 700. The main function of this Commission is to receive complaints of misconduct from the public against enforcement officers or law enforcement agencies in general and investigate and hold a hearing on the complaints received. This way the enforcement activities are constantly monitored and in the event of misconduct, appropriate actions will be recommended.
