The York Regional Police Professional Standards Bureau investigates public complaints as directed by the Office of the Independent Police Review Director (OIPRD). The bureau also conducts internal investigations as directed by the chief of police, including the review of incidents that require the involvement of Ontario's Special Investigations Unit.

The bureau ensures that York Regional Police members carry out their duties in compliance with the Ontario Police Services Act and the police service's regulations and procedures. Professional Standards also oversees discipline within the police service and all complaints, administered in accordance with the Ontario Police Services Act.

York Regional Police discipline hearings are governed by "Rules for Discipline Hearings under Part V of the Police Services Act", available in both French and English.
