Manhattan, New York 10007
Paranormal Contracts Oversight Commission (usually referenced by its acronym PCOC or P-COC, pronounced "peacock") is an overseeing committee created to supervise and warn the Ghostbusters if they are causing too much damage in their ghost capturing activities and can shut down the Ghostbusters' business if not taken seriously.
In 1991, the Ghostbusters were officially bonded contractors and expanded their business. During the Thanksgiving 1991 holiday, after the Ghostbusters' busts at the Sedgewick Hotel and Times Square, city council's concern for damages caused reached its limit. They ordered Mayor Jock Mulligan to place the Ghostbusters under close supervision for a period of no less than six months.  The Mayor accomplished this by appointing Walter Peck, the new head of PCOC.  PCOC was now assigned to keep them under control and keep the Office of the Mayor in the loop.  Peck was forced to deal with the Ghostbusters directly rather than shut them down and forfeit his new position.
PCOC sealed off the Sedgewick Hotel from the general public after the Ghostbusters' search for Slimer was completed. However, the posted notice made an effort to include the Ghostbusters among those excluded from entering the hotel. Egon Spengler dealt with the development by tearing PCOC's notice into shreds and the team entered the hotel once more.
Secondary Canon HistoryEdit
PCOC was reinstated after the "Infestation" event in order to keep the Ghostbusters in check for the good of the public and best interests of the city. A temporary office was set up in the Department of Public Safety at New York City Hall. PCOC's budget was slated to come up for review in the next quarter after summer. In the fall, Peter visited Peck's office without an appointment to discuss the Ghost Smashers but left without an resolution. The Ghostbusters and Ghost Smashers were soon summoned to Peck's office to come up with a solution for the Megaspook.
- During the scene between the Panic in Times Square Level and Checking Out the Library Level (realistic version), Mayor Mulligan refers to PCOC as Peck's "fiefdom." 
- The address to Walter Peck's office at PCOC is seen in Cover B of Ghostbusters Issue #9.
