The Independent Citizen Police Review Board in the City of Pittsburgh, PA, was established by a referendum amendment to the Pittsburgh Home Rule Charter on May 20, 1997. The Independent CPRB is mandated to be an objective and impartial entity focused on improving relations between the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police and civilians in the City of Pittsburgh. The CPRB conducts independent investigations into individual complaints of police conduct and offers advice & recommendations to the Chief of Police and Mayor on matters of police policy & procedure.

Our new website

The new independent website of the Citizen Police Review Board was publicly launched in September, 2012. On our site you will find information about the mission, history, board and staff of the CPRB, a Calendar of upcoming public meetings and events, information about Filing a Complaint, and a growing archive of documents can be found in For Public Record.

This important area of the website—the For Public Record section—includes CPRB board meeting minutes and case action and status reports, annual and interim reports, briefings and public hearing information, court documents and correspondence, and Police, City and Federal reports. More content is being added weekly as documents are processed and organized on the website.

Please be advised that police tactics and procedures that have not been disclosed by the Pittsburgh Bureau of Police will not be revealed on this site. Similarly, open investigations and investigations closed without a public hearing will not be discussed on this site.

We encourage you to comment, share your observations, offer suggestions and ask questions related to community police relations. We invite discussion initiated by civilians and police officers alike. The date, time and location of Upcoming Meetings & Events are published on this page, please try to join us.
