The Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB) says it has hundreds of police misconduct complaints related to last year's protest waiting to be heard and that no one has come forward to explain what happened. 
The CCRB says it received over 750 complaints stemming from the Black Lives Matter protests that took place last year, along with other reasons. 
Some of those reasons include officers allegedly covering their names and shield numbers, not using body cameras properly and incomplete paperwork. 
The board says it needs New Yorkers who witnessed the allegations to come forward and fill in the pieces to the puzzle. 
That puzzle consists of 146 open investigations against 460 NYPD officers, the CCRB says. 
Last week, the chair of the CCRB, Fred Davie, told News 12 that he thinks the agency needs to have full authority over what happens to officers who break the rules because at the moment the police commissioner has the final say. 
However, Davie says that without being able to prove that anything happened unlawfully, the CCRB will have its hands tied. 
So far, the CCRB says it has found proof of illegal behavior against 39 officers, but that the number pales in comparison to the total number of officers included in those complaints.
