Retired NYPD Chief of Transit among top cop Sewell’s two picks to Civilian Complaint Review Board


Retired NYPD Chief of Transit Joseph Fox was named Thursday to the independent Civilian Complaint Review Board to evaluate complaints against police officers that are filed by the public.

NYPD Commissioner Keechant Sewell appointed Fox, a 36-year NYPD veteran who led the department’s Transit Bureau for six years before retiring in 2018. Fox, after supervising more than 2,600 officers, was highly respected by the rank-and-file for being fair and approachable. He is now a public speaker/executive leadership coach and life coach.

Sewell also named to the board Charlane Brown, a lifelong New Yorker and former deputy inspector of the NYPD, who currently works as a lawyer and professor of criminal justice and law enforcement at Berkley College. Brown served in the NYPD for 26 years.
