Our Agencies

Our office manages three incredibly robust City agencies. These agencies work around the clock to develop and implement initiatives to improve the quality of life for New Yorkers.

The New York City Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB) is empowered to receive, investigate, mediate, hear, make findings, and recommend action on complaints against New York City police officers alleging the use of excessive or unnecessary force, abuse of authority, discourtesy, or the use of offensive language. The Board’s investigative staff, composed entirely of civilian employees, conducts investigations in an impartial fashion. The Board forwards its findings to the police commissioner.

The Office of Administrative Trials and Hearings (OATH) is the City’s central, independent administrative law court. OATH has two divisions that are responsible for adjudicating City matters: the OATH Trials Division and the OATH Hearings Division. The Trials Division adjudicates a wide range of issues that can be referred by any City agency, board or commission. In the Hearings Division, hearings are conducted on summonses issued by 25 different City enforcement agencies for alleged violations of law or City rules. OATH also houses the Center for Creative Conflict Resolution and the Administrative Judicial Institute.

Mayor’s Office of Information Privacy (MOIP)
The Mayor’s Office of Information Privacy (MOIP) works to protect the privacy of New Yorkers’ identifying information, while maximizing data sharing across agencies where permitted by law. In doing so, MOIP aims to increase access to and strengthen coordination of services for individuals and families, and to encourage innovative projects throughout the city that advance equity and opportunity. The Office is headed by the City’s Chief Privacy Officer (CPO), who works to strengthen and coordinate responsible citywide data-sharing practices. In collaboration with agencies, the CPO will also work to improve the way the City uses data to inform fair, equitable policies and best practices.
