NYPD Oversight Board Taps Top Prosecutor to Lead Agency

NEW YORK CITY — The city's Civilian Complaint Review Board, which oversees the NYPD, tapped its top prosecutor to lead it, officials announced Monday.

Jonathan Darche, who began his public service career as a staffer for Sen. Chuck Schumer, was officially appointed as executive director about six months after he was tapped to be acting director when his predecessor resigned to go teach at Harvard.

"I am deeply humbled to accept this position. In my time at the agency, I've learned just how vital a role it plays in the lives of all New Yorkers, civilians and members of service alike," Darche said.

"All of us—the CCRB's staff, community members and police officers—have a part to play in improvising the climate around policing in our neighborhoods, strengthening accountability and restoring trust," he added.
