The City of Miami’s Civilian Investigative Panel was created to provide civilian oversight of the Miami Police Department relating to police misconduct and civil rights violations. The Civilian Investigative Panel was formed in 2002 following several highly publicized police shootings. The Civilian Investigative Panel investigates complaints about City of Miami police officers for police misconduct and civil rights violations such as false arrest, false imprisonment, excessive use of force, and various other forms of police brutality.
