Police-Community Relations & Review Board
The Police Community Relations and Review Board is an independent, nonexclusive body to review complaints of misconduct by members of the City of Newburgh Police Department. The goals of the Board and Chapter 72 of the City Code are to improve communication between the City of Newburgh Police Department and the community, increase police accountability and credibility with the public, and create a fair and impartial complaint process. In addition, the Board provides a forum for the exchange of ideas between members of the public, their representatives, and the Police Department. The board is a way to encourage open discussion of crime-related, public safety, or other quality of life issues in the City, and a mechanism for the public to request particular services and recommend legislation or other means to deal with their concerns.
Formation of the Board
On July 14, 2014, the City Council adopted an ordinance creating the Police Community Relations and Review Board, consisting of nine members. Two members are appointed from each of the four wards by the Council member elected from each ward and the Chair is appointed by the City Council.
