The PLEB is a check and balance mechanism that promotes active people's participation and empowers the citizen against abusive and erring policemen, thereby instilling discipline in their ranks. It has the power to hear and adjudicate all citizen's complaints formally filed with, or referred to it, against any uniformed member of the PNP, and if warranted, impose the corresponding penalty.
