File #: 202001079    Version: 1
Type: Motion Status: Adopted
File created: 8/4/2020 In control: Cincinnati City Council
On agenda: 9/1/2020 Final action: 9/2/2020
ORD/RES# date: ORD/RES#:
Title: MOTION, submitted by Councilmember Landsman, The Citizen Complaint Authority (CCA) is at the heart of the Collaborative Agreement but it faces two major challenges. The CCA has been understaffed and the submitted complaints are not being investigated and responded to in a timely manner. At one point, the CCA had a backlog of over 100 cases, including many excessive use-of-force complaints. Secondly, new data and reporting suggest that when the CCA does submit to the Administration and the Cincinnati Public Department (CPD), their findings and recommendations for the cases they have investigated appear to be largely ignored.
