Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB)


The Civilian Complaint Review Board (“CCRB”) meets the second Wednesday of every month. Established on July 5, 1993, the Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB) is an independent agency with the power to receive, investigate, hear, make findings, recommend action upon and prosecute complaints by members of the public against members of the New York City Police Department that allege misconduct involving the use of excessive or unnecessary force, abuse of authority, discourtesy or use of offensive language. All personnel on staff are civilians.

The Board is comprised of 13 civilians members, five members selected by the Mayor, including the chair; five members designated by the City Council (one representative for each borough) and three members designated by the Police Commissioner. Police Commissioner designees are the only members permitted to have law enforcement backgrounds. Board members serve for three-year terms and until a replacement is appointed.
