Albany Community Police Review Board
Community Police Review Board - City of Albany Logo


The City of Albany Community Police Review Board (CPRB) is an independent body reviewing complaints of misconduct committed by officers of the Albany Police Department (APD). CPRB’s goals are to improve communication between APD and the community and increase police accountability and credibility with the community it serves.


CPRB’s responsibilities include receiving and reviewing community complaints of police misconduct, reviewing any investigation conducted by APD’s Office of Professional Services (OPS), reviewing APD and OPS policy, developing a police disciplinary matrix, and conducting independent investigations into alleged police misconduct. In a unique arrangement, the Government Law Center at Albany Law School provides substantial support services to assist the Board in its duties and day to day responsibilities.

The legislation that creates and governs the Board is part 33 of Chapter 42 of the Code of the City of Albany, which can be found online here:
