Civilian Police Review Board

On March 31, 2021, Mayor Andrew J. Ginther announced his appointments to the Civilian Police Review Board (CPRB) which will provide civilian oversight of police for the first time in Columbus history.

The purpose of the board is to help restore trust between the community and police. This Board allows for independent investigations – and review of internal investigations – as well as recommendations for discipline and policy changes outside the chain of command.
