About the Organization

The New York City Civilian Complaint Review Board is the oversight agency of the New York City Police Department, the largest police force in the United States. A board of the Government of New York City, the CCRB is tasked with investigating, mediating and prosecuting complaints of misconduct on the part of the NYPD.

The Civilian Complaint Review Board has over 100 full-time civilian investigators. Investigators form the core of the agency’s staff and lead the everyday functions necessary for fulfilling our mission. Investigators impartially review the thousands of complaints of police misconduct the agency receives each year, and recommend appropriate disciplinary action to the Board. Investigators are critical to the agency, and the role comes with a high level of learning and investment.


What You Get As An Investigator

After weeks of thorough training, new investigators graduate into a squad led by an investigative manager. Each squad reviews complaints of misconduct from specific precincts throughout New York City. For this service, investigators receive:

  • The autonomy they need to seek answers and close cases.
  • Ongoing professional development and training.
  • A competitive starting salary.
  • Comprehensive medical, dental, and vision benefits including for dependents.
  • Generous vacation, sick, bereavement, and family and medical leave policies.
  • Access to pre-tax public transit benefits and Flexible Spending Accounts.
  • The option to contribute to deferred compensation and city employees’ defined benefit retirement plan.
  • Representation in the Agency’s collective bargaining unit.


Alumni leave CCRB to pursue a variety of career paths. Many investigators and staff-members continue on in other roles at the Agency assuming new responsibilities in training, policy, and case management. Others pursue graduate study or careers in public service, law, journalism, and government. No matter your path, investigators leave the CCRB with a deep knowledge of municipal government, public safety, and police accountability.
