The CCRB does a series of office tours where the youth can explore different departments and careers at agency. This is a great opportunity for young people to be exposed to different career paths, while being civically engaged. We also have a Youth Advisory Council (YAC) is a working committee made up of young leaders who are committed to criminal justice issues and improving police-community relations. Members advise CCRB staff about its efforts to engage young New Yorkers, serve as ambassadors to their communities about the agency, and join team-building activities.
