The Office of the Independent Police Review Director

2011-2012 Annual Report

The OIPRD is an independent civilian oversight agency that ensures public complaints about the Ontario police are dealt with in a fair and responsible manner.

For its 2011-2012 annual report, the OIPRD decided on the theme Building A Solid Foundation. To emphasize this theme we incorporated a dramatic and interesting visual of cubes, building one upon the other, onto the report cover. Working from the cover, we added rectangular shapes to the interior report pages, each shape containing either a bold colour or a photograph. The OIPRD supplied the photography and we selected the most appealing images, ensuring that they had not appeared in previous marketing materials.

Since the OIPRD is accountable to both the police and the public, it was important that the report be as inclusive as possible. Accordingly, the report was produced in English and French and made accessible in a PDF format.
