The Commission of Counter Ghoul [sic] (喰種対策局 Gūru Taisaku Kyoku, literally "Ghoul Countermeasures Bureau"), usually abbreviated as CCG, is a federal agency in the Tokyo Ghoul series that serves as a criminal investigative body in cases connected to ghouls.
The ghouls commonly call the ghoul investigators Doves (白鳩, Hato), a nickname originating from the CCG's seal.
Currently, the office of Chairman is vacant. The CCG's former Chairman was Tsuneyoshi Washuu until his death. The Bureau Director title was held by his son, Yoshitoki Washuu, however after his death, the position was given to Kichimura Washuu. After the creation of Dragon, Kichimura has resigned from his position, leaving the spot of Bureau Director vacant.
The Ghoul Countermeasures Office (喰種対策院, Gūru Taisaku In), the predecessor of the CCG, was founded in 1890 as a state agency, and was first led by Daikichi Washuu, then head of the Washuu Clan. Eto Yoshimura claimed that the CCG's parent organization was founded over 100 years ago to counter a one-eyed ghoul. This unique ghoul was so powerful that humans needed to cooperate in order to exterminate it.
Initially, the CCG utilized firearms to oppose ghouls, which proved ineffective due to their physique. After a certain period of time, the organization, under the then Chairman Yoshiu Washuu's leadership, developed a new weapon to battle ghouls, the quinque, which was derived from the ghouls' kagune. The ghoul extermination rate increased rapidly thanks to that weapon, and it is still the desired weapon of choice to the investigators.

- Bureau investigators deal mostly with paperwork and back up ghoul investigators when necessary. Most of them are employed at CCG's branch offices. They are armed with firearms loaded with Q bullets.
