The mission of the Western Cape Police Ombudsman (WCPO) is to independently investigate and seek to resolve people's complaints against poor police and metro police service in an impartial manner. The mandate of the WCPO originates from what provinces are entitled to do in terms of the Constitution, namely: monitoring police conduct; overseeing the effectiveness and efficiency of the police service; and promoting good relations between the police and any community.
