Civilian Complaints Against New York City Police Officers

This free download is a database of more than 12,000 civilian complaints filed against New York City police officers. After New York state repealed the statute that kept police disciplinary records secret, known as 50-a, ProPublica filed a records request with New York City’s Civilian Complaint Review Board, which investigates complaints by the public about NYPD officers. The board provided us with records about closed cases for every police officer still on the force as of late June 2020 who had at least one substantiated allegation against them. The records span decades, from September 1985 to January 2020.
