The NYPD's oversight agency has recommended the department discipline 65 officers who are accused of misconduct during last year's anti-police protests.
The New York City Civilian Complaint Review Board received over 750 complaints concerning alleged NYPD officer conduct following the Black Lives Matter demonstrations during summer 2020, according to the agency. Only 313 complaints fell within the board's jurisdiction.
It found 42 substantiated complaints of misconduct concerning 65 officers, ABC reports.
The board recommended serving charges against officers in 37 complaints, Command Discipline B in 11 complaints, and Command Discipline A in 19 complaints.
The recommended disciplinary actions are the most severe forms of punishment against NYPD officers. According to the CCRB website, charges prompt an administrative trial that may lead to lost vacation time, suspension or termination.
