New Orleans Inspector General

The Office of the Independent Police Monitor (IPM) is an independent civilian police oversight agency created in August of 2008. Our goal is to improve police services to the community, citizen trust in the NOPD, and officer safety and working conditions. We do so by bringing accountability to the police department through independently observing the complaint investigation process; by brining transparency to the department by increasing access to public information about NOPD; and by insuring that departmental discipline, personnel practices, and policing practices are fair to both citizens and individual officers.
