NYPD Departure Letters

As a result of the November 2019 New York City Charter amendments, the Police Commissioner must submit a letter to the CCRB explaining any downward departures from the Board's disciplinary recommendations. While these letters have always been part of cases closed by the APU, the Charter change extends this requirement to all CCRB cases. While the CCRB receives notification of the final category of discipline, the Agency does not receive specifics on the penalty that the Police Commissioner ultimately imposes.
