Police Officer Misconduct

You can make a complaint to the NYC Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB) if you think you've experienced or witnessed police misconduct, including:

  • Excessive or unnecessary force
  • Discourtesy
  • Offensive language
  • Abuse of authority, such as threats or improper searches and seizures

The CCRB is independent and not a part of the New York City Police Department.
