Police transparency

It is still unclear when the de Blasio administration will make the disciplinary records easily accessible to the general public.
"We have policy makers that weren't privy to this info either. That's a real failing."
Gothamist/WNYC has identified seven officers in the CCRB’s data set with substantiated allegations in at least six separate complaints—the most of all current NYPD officers.
The restraining order is in effect until at least August 18th.
The delay seemingly stems in part from errors made by attorneys for the city's Law Department.
The mayor has promised a police disciplinary database. What will be in it?
"This is still a process where the NYPD retains too much control and discretion, and that's true of the body camera program overall."
"I have been fighting for years to pass this 50-A bill, and for years the police unions have been blocking the legislation, telling [lawmakers] that it was wrong, that it's gonna put officers at risk, which we know is not true."
The mayor's invocation of 50-A reform to prove his good faith commitment to police accountability in this moment is misleading.
Civilian complaints allege that Detective Camilo Antonini and his fellow officers committed sexual abuse related to body searches, used excessive force and, in at least two cases, committed robbery.
The bill was written at the behest of revanchist interests, and it was passed into law over the objections of legislators, civil liberties groups, and law enforcement officials.
If four men shoot and kill your unarmed son on the street, should you be officially informed of the killers’ names? In New York, the answer is no—if the shooters are police officers.
