The Office of the Police Ombudsman in Northern Ireland has been in operation for over 15 years and has been described as the "gold standard" of police accountability. 

In 2011 the Office was the subject of a series of critical reports questioning its independence from the police. 

It will examine the on-going challenges of delivering a robust police complaints system in Northern Ireland including funding, accessing information and the difficulties of dealing with the past.
