The Civilian Review Board of Baltimore City is an independent agency in the city through which members of the public can issue a complaint against officers of various law enforcement units. The Civilian Review Board takes complaints that allege the use of excessive force, abusive language, harassment, false arrest, and false imprisonment. The law enforcement units that the Civilian Review Board handles complaints for are: the Baltimore City Police Department, the Baltimore City School Police, the Baltimore City Sheriff's Office, the Baltimore Environmental Police, the Police Force of the Baltimore City Community College, and the Police Force of Morgan State. The Civilian Review Board also reviews Police Department Procedures and makes recommendations to the Commissioner.

 

Board members are composed of a member of the public from each of the nine police districts in Baltimore City.  Members of the Board are selected by the Mayor and subject to the advice and consent of the City Council.  Also on the Commission as nonvoting members, are one representative of the Fraternal Order of Police, one representative of the Vanguard Justice Society, the Baltimore City Police Commissioner or the Commissioner's designee, one representative of the American Civil Liberties Union of Maryland (ACLU), and one representative of the Baltimore City Branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP).
