Mayor Bill de Blasio today announced the appointments of Frederick Davie and Angela Fernández to the Civilian Complaint Review Board. Both Davie and Fernández bring to the CCRB a wealth of experience and a proven record serving New Yorkers, working closely with those in the LGBT and immigrant communities.
“Frederick Davie and Angela Fernández’s years of dedicated community work make them great additions to the Civilian Complaint Review Board,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “Frederick’s years of experience working in social justice and LGBT programs as well as Angela’s tireless work defending immigrant New Yorkers illustrates their commitment to community and their ability to serve New Yorkers as CCRB members. I look forward to working closely with both of them.”
"As a place of dynamic discourse and critical evaluation of evidence in police misconduct complaints and trends, the Board's strength is its diversity of expertise and experience. The Mayor's appointees will add mightily to these strengths," said Maya Wiley, Chair of the Civilian Complaint Review Board.
“Public service is in my DNA. I have believed all of my adult life that good community and police relations benefit everyone. So, I am pleased and honored that Mayor de Blasio has afforded me this unique opportunity to combine these two passions and serve the citizens of New York City on the CCRB,” said Frederick Davie.
"I am thankful to Mayor de Blasio for giving me the opportunity to serve the City of New York under his Administration. The Civilian Complaint Review Board plays a critical role in providing impartial and objective investigations, with the ultimate goal of strengthening community and police relations. As a member of the CCRB, I promise to defend and protect the rights of all New Yorkers, ensuring that the rights, dignity and value of human life of both civilians and officers are protected. I am committed to building bridges between our civilian and police communities, making our city a model to be followed nationwide,” saidAngela Fernández.
