The Government commissioned an independent review of the Independent Police Complaints Commission’s governance and structure in 2015 and legislated via the Policing and Crime Act 2017 to fundamentally reform the or-ganisation, renaming it as the Independent Office for Police Conduct (IOPC). These changes came into force in January 2018.

The IOPC is funded by the Home Office but carries out its functions inde-pendently, free from political interference. However, it is required by law to report on the carrying out of its functions annually to Parliament. Those annual reports include data on its performance / effectiveness and can be found https://www.policeconduct.gov.uk/who-we-are/accountability-and-performance/annual-report-and-plans

They also publish a monthly round up of performance statistics https://www.policeconduct.gov.uk/who-we-are/accountability-and-performance/annual-report-and-plans
