PBA PRESIDENT ON BIAS AT CCRB

PBA president Patrick J. Lynch said:

“A persistent pattern of anti-police bias has always infected the supposedly impartial CCRB.  The fact that some board members believe that complainants' criminal histories are irrelevant but police officers' complaint histories aren't is yet another example of the destructive trend. New York City police officers go through rigorous training to prevent implicit bias from factoring into their decision-making. Perhaps the CCRB staff and board members would benefit from some of that same type of training.”
