The Civilian Complaint Review Board of New York City has recommended discipline against 39 officers, including police leadership, over their response in last year’s George Floyd protests, according to a new report released Monday.

The Board issued an update on its investigation into the NYPD’s handling of the protests last summer, saying it has so far substantiated 26 complaints of misconduct against the nearly 40 officers, the New York Post reports.

The majority of the cases with charges were for complaints of force and abuse of authority, according to the report.

Seven officers are expected to get a B-level command discipline, which is a penalty of up to 10 days, while the board recommended the lowest level of discipline, up to five days, for the remaining 17 officers.
