The mission of the Citizen Complaint Authority (CCA) is to investigate serious interventions by police
officers, including, but not limited to, discharges of firearms, deaths in custody, and major uses of force, and
to review and resolve citizen complaints of law enforcement misconduct in a fair and efficient manner.

CCA’s mission also includes the examination of patterns to identify opportunities for the Cincinnati Police
Department and community to prevent complaints. Such examinations include identifications of at-risk
officers, citizens, and circumstances. In doing so, CCA examines both circumstances that lead to complaints
and opportunities to alter those circumstances.
