The PBA pushes back on the persistent pattern of anti-police bias that infects the supposedly “impartial” CCRB.
During the two weeks before the Nov. 5, 2019 election, the PBA launched a multimedia campaign to encourage pro-police voters in NYC to vote "NO" on Ballot Question #2, which would amend the City Charter to radically expand the Civilian Complaint Review Board's jurisdiction and power.
The image below appeared as ads in local daily and weekly papers during that time, beginning on Oct. 21 in the NY Post and the Staten Island Advance. Similar messages were also sent as mailers to likely pro-police voters across the city, and appeared as part of a social media ad campaign.
In 2015, the PBA fired back at the CCRB and its Chairman Richard Emery with a TV advertisement running on NY1, CNN, MSNBC, Fox News and News 12. The ad called on Mayor de Blasio to stop disrespecting New York City police officers and fire Richard Emery. The campaign was covered in the Daily News and on WINS radio.
