The District of Columbia’s Office of Police Complaints (OPC), and its governing body, the Police Complaints Board (PCB), were created by statute in 1999 to provide independent review of complaints filed by members of the public against Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) and D.C. Housing Authority Police Department (DCHAPD) officers. PCB and OPC accomplish this function primarily by receiving, investigating, and resolving individual complaints. However, when, in the course of addressing individual complaints, PCB identifies systemic problems that, if remedied, may reduce the incidence of police misconduct, the Board is authorized to recommend corrective action to the Mayor, the Council of the District of Columbia, and the MPD Chief of Police. It is pursuant to this statutory authority that PCB issues this report and its accompanying recommendations. (Authors)
