Ferguson Civilian Review Board (FCRB)
Anyone who believes they have experienced, witnessed, or represents a minor who has experienced misconduct by a member of the Ferguson Police Department (FPD) may file a complaint.
Complaints can be filed by completing an official complaint form.
In addition, complaint forms may also be found and submitted at these locations:
- Ferguson City Hall, 110 Church Street
- Ferguson Police Department, 222 S. Florissant Road
- At Ferguson Civilian Review Board meetings. See the City Calendar for meeting dates, times, and locations
The steps followed after a complaint is filed are shown below.
Complaint Review Process
When a citizen complaint against an FPD officer is filed, the FPD assigns a complaint number, notifies the FCRB about the complaint, and begins an investigation.
When FPD completes its investigation it notifies the FCRB and forwards the investigation documentation, including Body Worn Camera footage, to the FCRB. The FCRB reviews the complaint and FPD findings/determinations. The FCRB may request additional information or further investigation before completing their review.
After completing its review, the FCRB’s independent recommendations are forwarded to the FPD Chief of Police. The FPD Chief of Police will make a final determination, and the board and the person filing the complaint will be notified in writing of the final determination of the complaint.
