When not collecting DNA evidence surreptitiously from a soda can or another discarded object, officers will give adults a consent form.
The defense plans to appeal.
A juror accused other jurors of claiming knowledge about DNA evidence in order to hasten a verdict.
Chanel Lewis's sentencing has been postponed pending a hearing on a motion concerning juror misconduct.
Chanel Lewis was convicted of murder last week.
The juror didn't understand why, when the jury wanted to see the videotaped confession, technical problems prevented them for doing so.
This was the second trial; the first ended in a hung jury.
'I am an NYPD officer. You are defending Mr. Chanel Lewis in which you do not have full disclosure of information.'
Chanel Lewis, whose confession defense lawyers are arguing was coerced, is being tried again for first-degree murder, which carries a life sentence.
'After deliberating for the entire day we are split. It doesn’t seem like we can make progress. We feel that we have exhausted all of our options.'
According to Lewis's attorneys, the NYPD collected 16,000 hours of surveillance footage from around Spring Creek Park at the time of the murder, none of which show Chanel Lewis.
The Queens DA's office has been withholding crucial pieces of evidence from the media, including 911 calls and medical records, even after repeated requests by members of the press, and in contradiction of a long-standing federal court ruling that ensures that reporters have access to evidence entered in criminal court.
