The Police Complaints Authority (PCA) is an independent body set up under statute to give public confidence to the system for investigating complaints against the police, by supervising investigations in allegations of police misconduct or incidents of public concern; and reviewing evidence on referrals of police officers to misconduct hearings. This is the last PCA report and accounts, as it was replaced by a new body, the Independent Police Complaints Commission, in April 2004.
