PBA Public Safety Tracker

Policy Actions Have Consequences on the Street

New York City police officers come to work each day with one goal in mind: to make every block in every neighborhood safe for every New Yorker. We’ve made tremendous gains over the past two decades, but the job is far from finished.

NYC’s real public safety experts are people like you. You see what’s happening on your block, and you hear every day  about crime and disorder occurring around the city.  You know that the "Safest Big City in America" doesn't feel that way in every neighborhood.

The only public safety and policing agenda that should matter is yours — but all too often, that’s not the agenda being discussed on the steps of City Hall. The result is bad public safety policy that normalizes criminal behavior and deprives police officers on the street of the tools we need to protect you, your family and your neighbors.

This public safety tracker will highlight notable crime incidents in context, alongside current crime trends and the broader policy discussion.  You can use this information to make sure your voice is heard: speak out about conditions in your neighborhood, contact your elected officials and tell them they need to make safe streets a priority.

Sign up to receive PBA updates on important public safety issues.

Share your thoughts about conditions in your neighborhood (To report specific crimes, call 911. To report specific quality-of-life issues, dial 311 or contact your Neighborhood Coordination Officer).

Brooklyn DA coddling gun-toters: NYPD chief
7/8/2019

The NYPD’s top cop on Monday groused that the Brooklyn DA is going too easy on gun-possession cases — as officials announced that shootings are up citywide despite a downswing in overall crime.

Of 158 guilty pleas that Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez has obtained for weapons possession, 47 resulted in the guilty party entering a no-jail diversion program, according to NYPD Chief Terence Monahan.

Ray Kelly rails against Rikers closure, city’s homeless problem

Former Police Commissioner Ray Kelly raged against plans to open neighborhood jails, decriminalize fare-beating and a ballooning homelessness crisis during a radio appearance Sunday.

What kind of horror will it take for the Assembly to OK banning serial pervs from the subway?
7/6/2019

If you’re wondering why not a week now goes by without news of another perv groping, grinding, exposing or even attacking innocents on the subway, well: Blame the state Assembly.

 

The NYPD puts a high priority on nabbing these sickos. But while it can arrest them and provide evidence that leads to a conviction, it can’t keep them off the trains or out of the stations because state law has no provision for an outright ban of even the worst serial offenders.

New York on track to record lowest murder rate in decades
7/1/2019

“The NYPD will continue to focus on gun violence and the criminals who cause it in our unceasing efforts to ensure New York City remains the safest big city in America,” said NYPD spokesman Phillip Walzak.

This year’s drop in killings appear to be driven by significant decreases in the Bronx and the southern part of Brooklyn, even as murders spiked in Manhattan and Staten Island.

De Blasio wants teens charged with robbery, assault freed without bail
5/27/2019

Mayor Bill de Blasio hopes to “more than triple” the number of teens who are released from city jails with no bail on charges as serious as armed robbery, assault and burglary, The Post has learned.

New guidelines from the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice will also “significantly” expand the number of adults eligible for de Blasio’s no-bail Supervised Release Program, according to a memo sent to top city judges this month and obtained by The Post.

Penetrate the secrecy shield: New York State law must stop hiding police disciplinary records from public view
5/8/2019

This summer will mark the five-year anniversary of Eric Garner’s death at the hands of a New York City police officer, who used what would be a fatal chokehold on Garner as he pleaded for breath on a Staten Island sidewalk. Since that day in July 2014, calls for greater police accountability in New York City and across the state sparked by Garner’s death have been stymied by an unusual secrecy provision in New York’s civil rights code.

State lawmakers have the power to change that — and must act before the legislative session ends in June.

NYPD flouts requirement to disclose police misconduct info, vows to post data
5/6/2019

The NYPD has ignored for more than two years a city law requiring it to reveal statistics about officer misconduct, the Daily News has learned.

Police admitted the omission and said the information would soon be on its website.

The department declined to say why the data had not been posted, but City Councilman Rory Lancman (D-Queens) said there is a simple explanation: the NYPD’s first instinct when it comes to information is to withhold it.

No decision yet on supervised injection sites in NYC

There's still no word from state health officials on whether New York City can proceed with plans for safe injection sites.

Councilman sues NYPD over refusal to release farebeating arrest data

A city councilman sued the NYPD Friday after the department refused to turn over statistics on subway farebeating arrests he says should be available under the state Freedom of Information law.

Councilman Rory Lancman (D-Queens) and the Community Service Society of New York had asked for information on fare beating broken down by all 472 subway stations.

Don’t let activists and lawyers weaponize police-discipline records
4/14/2019

With the Legislature now done with the budget — and mostly through with the complaining rampant among younger members looking to explain and excuse their minor role in a process that is much bigger than they are — attention now turns to other issues. Among these is a technical matter with enormous impact on law ­enforcement and first responders in every city, town, village and county in New York.

To wit, there’s an effort underway to make publicly available the personnel files of police, firefighters and other uniformed civil servants. The Sergeants Benevolent Association, the diverse union I have the honor of leading, has been steadfast in its public opposition to this proposal. It’s a reckless measure that is bound to adversely ­impact law and order across the Empire State.

N.Y. just helped drug traffickers: Bail reform will make it impossible for prosecutors to hold members of cartels while we build the cases against them
4/11/2019

New Yorkers will be shocked to discover that a new bail statute, passed as part of the state budget, mandates pretrial release of hundreds arrested for top narcotics crimes. Unless a defendant faces a single, seldom-charged narcotics offense, the new law requires judges to treat cartel associates the same as low-level street dealers when it comes to bail. This change arrives in the midst of an opioid epidemic, when overdoses are killing thousands of New Yorkers each year, far more than all violent crimes combined.

This legislative language represents a stunning departure from Gov. Cuomo’s original proposal — which would have allowed remand on all top narcotics offenses and factored into decisions about holding people the danger an individual posed to another, as well as the likelihood they might not return to face trial — and undermines efforts to rein in the flow of deadly drugs to our state.

State’s new cash bail reform puts public at risk: District attorneys

ALBANY – Lawmakers, activists and families impacted by violent encounters with the police gathered at the Capitol on Tuesday to push for a repeal of 50-a, a state law that blocks the public release of disciplinary records of police officers, corrections personnel and firefighters.

City Council poised to pass bill barring marijuana drug tests for people on probation

The City Council is poised to pass a bill on Monday that would stop the city from conducting tests for marijuana on people who are on probation, the Daily News has learned.

“This bill will close one trap door that trips people up,” said the council’s Public Safety Committee chair Donovan Richards. “Too many people come out, they are trying to do better, and they get busted for marijuana and go back into jail or prison. This sets them back.”

Manhattan and Bronx prosecutors agree to drop all petty summonses after request from Councilman Lancman
3/18/2019

The district attorneys of Manhattan and the Bronx have agreed to clear all summonses for petty offenses — so-called quality of life crimes — from their books after Queens Councilman Rory Lancman urged all city prosecutors abandon prosecuting “broken windows” offenses.

Lancman, the head of the council’s justice system committee and a candidate for Queens DA, wrote a letter to all five city district attorney offices last week expressing his concern that warrants on summonses had started to increase after a steep drop following the passage of the Criminal Justice Reform Act.

Homicides in the city have surged by 37% so far in 2019, and the NYPD said on Monday it will be sending more cops to some neighborhoods to turn the tide.

There have been 52 murders in the city year-to-date compared with 38 in the same period last year, officials said. A spike in the month of February, which had 24 homicides compared with 16 in February last year, helped drive up the statistics.

NYPD resists City Council bills to protect the children of incarcerated parents
2/25/2019

NYPD brass is dragging its feet on a pair of City Council proposals to protect the children of incarcerated parents or caregivers.

Spurred in part by the arrest of Jazmine Headley, a 23-year-old Brooklyn mom whose infant was torn from her arms by cops at a Human Resources Administration office in December, one bill would require the NYPD to implement a child sensitive arrest policy, including the delay of arrests while kids are around whenever possible. The legislation would also require officers to ask if the suspect being arrested is responsible for any children and to train cops on the effect of trauma on kids.

EXCLUSIVE: Reform groups say they'll lobby hard in Albany to repeal law that keeps police discipline records secret
2/11/2019

A coalition of 88 police reform groups are making a hard push to scrap a decades-old state law that keeps officer discipline records secret.

The groups — many of them working under the banner of Communities United for Police Reform — will send a letter Tuesday to the state legislature calling for a series of police reforms, including the repeal of 50-a — a 1976 statute that limits public access to police and firefighters' disciplinary records.

2/7/2019

The New York City Council's Committee on Public Safety convened on Thursday to discuss a sweeping package of bills to improve police accountability for officer misconduct, sparking impassioned testimonies from relatives of victims and accusations of apathy by police officials.

 

"I don't think the NYPD understands what they're doing to people," said Victor Dempsey, the brother of Delrawn Small, who was killed by off-duty officer Wayne Isaacs. "Not only are they murdering civilians--they're demolishing the trust people have in them."

Let NYC see police records, now: We must reform state law keeping disciplinary actions secret
2/7/2019

In 2018, crime in New York City hit another record low. In 1990, there were more than 2,200 murders; last year, fewer than 300.

 The NYPD produced these historic gains with a systemic focus on the people and places driving crime.

 The next-level crime reduction will be achieved by working with community members, candidly discussing problems and sharing responsibility for safety together.

 This is the vision behind our neighborhood policing philosophy, and since its introduction in 2015, we have forged deeper connections with the people we serve, in every community.

NYPD files cease-and-desist against traffic app, Waze for identifying DWI checkpoints

"The NYPD has become aware that the Waze Mobile application...currently permits the public to report DWI checkpoints throughout New York City and map these locations," wrote Ann Prunty, the NYPD's acting deputy commissioner for legal matters. "Accordingly, we demand that Google LLC, upon receipt of this letter, immediately remove this function from the Waze application."

New York Tackled Subway Crime. But Is It Starting to Come Back?
2/4/2019

In January, a sleeping rider was stabbed in the head with a screwdriver on New York City’s subway. A month before that, a police officer fended off five homeless men who attacked him on a train platform. And on Sunday afternoon, a man was fatally shot at a subway station in Queens, the first recorded murder on the system in six months.

The subway has come a long way since the dark days of the 1980s and 1990s when violence was rampant and riders felt constant dread. The system has become very safe, with just one murder on the subway last year compared with 26 in 1990.

1/6/2019

About 300 more people came forward to report they were raped last year in New York City than the previous year, a sharp increase that officials theorize was fueled in part by the #MeToo movement.

“At this particular time, I still strongly oppose it. I think there are too many unanswered questions,” Bratton told 970 AM host John Catsimatidis on his morning radio show, “The Cats Roundtable.” “We still don’t have effective capabilities in law enforcement to deal with the issue of driving while impaired by the use of marijuana. It is as addictive as any other drug.”

Officials fear surge in stoned drivers if marijuana legalized
12/29/2018

Get ready for high times on the highway.

As New York moves toward legalizing recreational marijuana, the instances of motorists driving while stoned is likely to surge, if the past experience of weed-legal states is any indicator.

12/28/2018

The NYPD is ramping up security for the city’s annual New Year’s Eve celebration in Times Square with more than 1,200 cameras — some installed on high-flying drones — to protect the nearly 2 million expected revelers, police officials said Friday.

One of the high-tech gadgets will be tethered to the top of a building to prevent potential attacks on the wild party below, Police Commissioner James O’Neill said at a press conference.

City will hire 6 workers to remove used needles from parks
12/28/2018

The city plans to hire six workers just to clean up the fields of syringes littering drug-infested South Bronx parks amid the failure of Mayor Bill de Blasio’s program to get junkies to toss their used needles in special bins.

Asked about The Post’s front-page story on the syringe-dropping plague, the Parks Department said Friday that the new workers — to be hired in January at an annual cost of about $350,000 in salaries and benefits — will be “dedicated to routinely canvassing and cleaning high-volume areas” favored by addicts.

12/28/2018

NYPD reports no homicides in New York City in 6 straight days
12/27/2018

NEW YORK (WABC) -- The NYPD reported no homicides for six straight days in New York City, and with the year wrapping up, the city may be on track to have fewer murders in 2018 than in 2017.

The five boroughs are on track to have fewer than 300 homicides this year: 283 people were killed in New York City this year. Comparatively, 286 were killed in the city in 2017.

NYPD commissioner worries about drivers on weed
12/27/2018

The city’s top cop said Sunday that the NYPD knows legal weed isn’t far off for the Big Apple — but he’s concerned about how the drug might affect drivers.

“The NYPD knows it’s coming,” NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill told radio host John Catsimatidis on his morning AM 970 show The Cats Roundtable. “And a few of those things are, what are we going to do about the people that are under the age of 21?”

De Blasio’s plan to safely dispose of used needles is failing
12/27/2018

Mayor Bill de Blasio’s plan to have junkies toss their used syringes into special receptacles has failed to clean up drug-infested parks, and the bins are serving more as suggestion boxes — spreading the message that the city is OK with them shooting up there.

Official statistics obtained by The Post from the first six months of de Blasio’s controversial program show that parks in the Bronx are still littered with dangerous hypodermic needles, with nearly 60,000 found on the ground compared with just 7,000 in Hizzoner’s 44 locked containers.

District attorney says murders hit record low in Brooklyn
12/27/2018

Brooklyn is stayin’ alive.

The borough is on track to end the year with fewer than 100 homicides for the first time in nearly 50 years, Brooklyn DA Eric Gonzalez announced today.

So far, there have been just 97 homicides in 2018, a record low since “modern” record-keeping began in 1970 — and a stark departure from the 800 reported slayings at the height of crack cocaine violence in 1992, his office said.

Three vagrants who attacked cop will be arrested, NYPD says
12/26/2018

The NYPD on Wednesday announced plans to arrest three vagrants in an attack on a lone cop inside a Manhattan subway station — and admitted it never told prosecutors about the incident when the men were later busted for sleeping on the platform.

Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr. came under blistering criticism when prosecutors dropped illegal-sleeping charges against the three men and two others Monday night, with the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association and various pols accusing him of turning the subways over to lawbreakers.

DA faults NYPD in call not to charge vagrants in subway platform melee
12/26/2018

Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance Jr. on Wednesday said it’s the NYPD’s fault that his office cut loose the homeless men caught on camera attacking a cop in a Manhattan subway station — because they were only busted for illegally sleeping on the platform, which no longer gets prosecuted under a 2016 accord.

Vance spokesman Danny Frost said prosecutors didn’t know the vagrants “were suspected of anything other than sleeping on the subway” when they got hauled into court Monday night — even though video of the attack, first reported by The Post, prompted multiple news reports earlier in the day.

I don't want to hurt you," as the men approached him in unison. The officer brandished his baton, but does not appear to have reached for his service revolver.

Legal weed could make NYPD’s drug-sniffing dogs obsolete
12/21/2018

As many as a dozen drug-sniffing NYPD pooches could be forced into early retirement when New York legalizes weed, the city’s top cop said Friday.

“We’re probably gonna have to end up getting new dogs,” Commissioner James O’Neill told reporters. “It is a concern of ours.”

Brooklyn to wipe out over 1,400 warrants in marijuana cases
12/19/2018

Hundreds of low-level marijuana convictions are going up in smoke.

Brooklyn District Attorney Eric Gonzalez announced Wednesday that he’s following through on plans to wipe out more than 1,400 warrants in misdemeanor weed possession cases, as well as over two dozen past convictions.

“The majority of these warrants were issued to black and Latino New Yorkers, and many are remnants of stop-and-frisk policies that harmed many of our communities and that the city has since abandoned,” Gonzalez said in court.

New York City police using firearms at lowest rate on record
12/19/2018

NEW YORK (AP) — New York City police say officers are using their Tasers far more frequently than their firearms.

The NYPD released its 2017 use-of-force report Wednesday. It showed officers opened fire 52 times last year.

That's the lowest number of police shooting incidents since the department began keeping track in 1971. But officers fatally shot 10 suspects in 2017, an increase from nine the previous year.

12/19/2018

A client went berserk at a Manhattan welfare office Tuesday, attacking a city peace officer and resisting staff’s request to calm down by howling, “This ain’t f-----g Brooklyn!” — a reference to another recent brawl in a welfare office that ended with NYPD cops snatching a baby from his mother’s arms.

NYPD Internal Affairs Find Cops Did Nothing Wrong During Arrest Of Jazmine Headley
12/17/2018

An NYPD Internal Affairs Bureau review concluded that police officers did nothing wrong when they dragged a one-year-old boy away from his mother at a Brooklyn public service assistance center earlier this month.

According to Politico, the Internal Affairs Bureau found no wrongdoing on the part of the officers involved in the brutal arrest of Jazmine Headley, which went viral earlier this month, and the officers are not expected to face any discipline or change of status.

Opinion—NYPD in view: Police records must be made public
12/17/2018

New York's highest court last week declared that even heavily redacted police disciplinary records can be hidden from public view. It was a dark day for anyone who cares about holding the minority of cops who abuse their authority accountable — which should be everyone.

The dispute centers around a four-decade-old law referred to as 50-a, which limits public access to police and firefighters' disciplinary records.

Union demands de Blasio reinstate officers who ripped baby from mom’s arms
12/17/2018

The head of the union that represents two Human Resources Administration officers suspended after the video-recorded wrestling of a baby from its mother demanded on Monday that Mayor Bill de Blasio reinstate them and apologize for making them his “sacrificial lambs.”

Teamsters Local 237 president Gregory Floyd has blasted Hizzoner repeatedly in the wake of the Dec. 7 arrest of Jazmine Headley while she was cradling her 1-year-old son in a Brooklyn public benefits office — both for the mayor’s slow public response and for his singling out of HRA officers for rebuke.

Two men attacked, slurred with N-word by white suspects in separate bias incidents
12/17/2018

Two men were viciously attacked by white hatemongers in separate bias incidents in Manhattan early Monday, police said.

One of the attacks was so vicious that the victim, a 27-year-old aspiring musician, will need titanium plates to rebuild his broken jaw, the man’s family and girlfriend told the Daily News.

Bias crimes are up 5% in the city so far this year — 340 compared to 325 last year. Anti-black incidents are up 27% — 42 this year compared to 33 last year.

Injuries to school safety officers see drastic decline; S.I. complaints rise
12/15/2018

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. -- Data from the NYPD shows that injuries to school safety officers have seen a decline in consecutive years citywide, down from 121 reported cases in 2016 to only 28 through three quarters of 2018.

While the 2018 statistics only feature 75 percent of the expected data for 2018, a drastic dip in overall injuries is evident.

However, the fourth quarter of the year has been known to see an uptick in overall injuries, according to NYPD data.

NYPD Tests Out Metal Detectors In The Subway
12/14/2018

A year ago this week, a man detonated a pipe bomb during rush hour inside the passageway connecting the Times Square and Port Authority subway stations. It was the first attempted suicide terrorist attack in NYC since September 11th, although only two people, including the bomber, were hurt. Coinciding with the anniversary, the NYPD rolled out a new security pilot program inside Port Authority: a singular subway metal detector, manned by heavily-armed officers.

The metal detector was installed on Wednesday, the anniversary of Akayed Ullah's pipe bomb attack. As with the NYPD's bag search program, the department says subway riders are chosen randomly for the enhanced screening. NYPD Transit tweeted about it, along with the intimidating photo up above, "Our officers working with our @PANYNJ Police partners this morning at the Port Authority Bus Terminal / 42nd Street subway station in our constant effort to keep travelers safe." Twitter users immediately mocked it, calling it a "nuisance" and a "huge show of security theater."

Nationwide bomb threats "NOT considered credible," NYPD says
12/13/2018

New York — Law enforcement authorities say a flurry of bomb threats sent electronically across the country are "NOT CREDIBLE," including those in New York City. Multiple reports Thursday said various states, businesses, medical offices and schools were the target of the alleged threats. Dozens of local police departments from coast to coast said they were investigating, but nothing had been found.

"Searches have been conducted and NO DEVICES have been found," NYPD said. "We'll respond to each call regarding these emails to conduct a search but we wanted to share this information so the credibility of these threats can be assessed as likely NOT CREDIBLE."

NYPD hoping to celebrate end of 2018 with a drop in crime from the year before
12/13/2018

Police Commissioner James O’Neill is hoping to celebrate the new year in a big way — ending 2018 without New York City seeing a spike in murders or shootings from the previous year.

NYPD officers shoot armed man while responding to gunplay in the Bronx: sources
12/12/2018

NYPD officers responding to a shooting in the Bronx opened fire on a suspected gunman, wounding him Wednesday night, police sources said.

Plainclothes officers with the 47th Precinct’s anti-crime unit were patrolling near Cranford Ave. and White Plains Rd. in Wakefield when they heard gunshots at about 7:45 p.m., police said.

They got out of their car and came upon a man toting a silver revolver, NYPD Chief of Patrol Rodney Harrison told reporters.

“The officers yelled, ‘Police, don’t move! Drop the gun!’” Harrison said. When the man pointed his gun at the officers, one of the cops fired a single round, hitting the man in the chest.

Pedro Hernandez — cause célèbre for bail reform — arrested again
12/12/2018

Pedro Hernandez, who became a bail reform darling after he spent a year at Rikers Island because he was unable to post the money needed for his freedom, was arrested Wednesday for driving with a suspended license, police said.

It is the third time he’s been arrested for driving without a valid license in the past two years, sources said.

Cops stopped Hernandez, 19, shortly after noon after he was seen driving a BMW with no front license plate on Bronxwood Ave. near E. 213th St. in Williamsbridge. The car’s rear license plate didn’t match the vehicle and may have been stolen, police sources said. When cops ran his driver’s license, they realized it was suspended.

12/11/2018

The latest legal effort by civil rights advocates to force the New York Police Department to make disciplinary records of police officers public failed on Tuesday in the state’s highest court.

Robert F. Kennedy mass bailout program is ‘lunacy’: NYPD union head
12/9/2018

The head of the NYPD’s sergeants’ union on Sunday blasted the Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights charity for bailing out hundreds of accused criminals — many with histories of violence.

“It’s lunacy,” Sergeants Benevolent Association President Ed Mullins said on AM 970’s John Catsimatidis’ “The Cats Roundtable” radio show. “They are beginning to develop a history of posting bail for individuals who are not returning to court, who have a history of crimes.”

The foundation spent $1.2 million to bail out 105 women and teens from Rikers Island in October — despite their criminal histories or charges the faced.

Critics call NYPD's drone deployment 'a serious threat to privacy'
12/9/2018

Drones are coming to New York City, and that should worry you. 

So argues the New York Civil Liberties Union, which in a Dec. 7 statement blasts the forthcoming NYPD deployment of the flying surveillance bots as "a serious threat to privacy." The 14 police drones, which the New York Times reports had been acquired by city police in June, are ostensibly to be used for tasks like keeping an eye on large crowds or hostage situations. However, critics see the deployment as the start of a very slippery, privacy-eroding slope. 

After all, large crowds of people often gather together to lawfully protest something like, say, police brutality. Or, as the NYPD specifically notes as a drone-appropriate example (according to the NYCLU), the Women's March. 

NYPD: Deadly crime more than doubled in 50th Precinct over last year
12/6/2018

NYPD counterterrorism chief says today’s threats are “two inches deep but miles wide”
12/5/2018

Even though the territories held by extremist groups like al Qaeda and ISIS have been eroded, the groups' global propaganda reach is still proving to be an effective recruitment tool, inspiring uncomplicated but deadly terror attacks on U.S. soil, according to the head of the New York Police Department's Intelligence and Counterterrorism bureaus.

"[T]he unintended consequence of our effectively smashing ISIS and al-Qaeda – the pieces scattered," said Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller in a recent interview with Intelligence Matters host and CBS News senior national security contributor Michael Morell.

Send in the drones: NYPD launches its new 'unmanned aircraft' system
12/4/2018

The NYPD is buzzing about it’s new fleet of drones — but not all of the buzz is good.

The department announced Tuesday that it has acquired 14 drones that will be soon be deployed across the city during emergencies, officials said.

The NYPD’s Technical Assistance and Response Unit will be utilizing the drones to assist in rescue missions, inaccessible crime scenes and hostage situations.

“As the largest municipal police department in the United States, the NYPD must always be willing to leverage the benefits of new and always-improving technology,” NYPD Commissioner James O’Neill said in a statement. “Our new (unmanned aircraft system) program is part of this evolution.”

NYC crime takes November dip to lowest levels — including lowest number of homicides for the month in modern era
12/4/2018

The NYPD enjoyed a November to remember as monthly crime figures indicated that 2018 could set a record low for crimes in a calendar year.

The safest November in modern NYPD history ended last week with a 5% overall decrease in crime compared with November 2017. Police said the drop was spurred by a 15.8% drop in burglaries and an 11.8% plunge in robberies.

“The NYPD has once again done what a lot of people said was impossible,” said Mayor de Blasio. “(Last year) was a record year for lower crime — and the NYPD is starting to surpass that record.”

Critics of NYPD disciplinary process push for dramatic changes
12/2/2018

Critics of the NYPD’s handling of disciplinary cases want a panel reviewing the system to give the task to an outside agency.

But moving NYPD administrative trials to the Office of Trials and Hearings — which conducts hearings for all city workers except police officers and teachers — would face multiple hurdles, including either a legal change, or deputizing the agency’s judge to preside over NYPD trials.

And it’d likely spark stiff opposition from the city’s biggest police union, the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, whose president, Pat Lynch, defends police administrative judges as the best arbiters of NYPD rules and practices.

These Are NYC's Most Crime-Ridden Subway Stations
11/25/2018

Gang Databases Are the Latest Controversial Policing Tool
7/26/2018

— Wall Street Journal: Politicians and advocates in major cities are scrutinizing police departments for the way they label and track suspected gang members, saying the methods lack oversight and unfairly expose minorities to the criminal justice system.

Police departments in Los Angeles, New York and Chicago use databases that include thousands of people, mostly minorities, some of whom haven’t been arrested for a crime.

Trinitarios gang members go ballistic in city jail

How a 'Sentiment Meter' Helps Cops Understand Their Precincts
7/16/2018

THREE WEEKS INTO his new job as commanding officer of Manhattan’s 20th precinct, Captain Timothy J. Malin stared at a map on his computer screen, puzzled. It showed his jurisdiction carved up by streets and parks, with the southern edge encased in an ominous shade of red.

For decades, the New York Police Department has used real-time statistics to chart spikes in violence and calibrate police activity across the city. This map, however, displayed not crime data but something new in the arsenal of police metrics: public approval. The crimson on Malin’s map indicated that some residents in his precinct, the Upper West Side—one of New York City’s wealthiest and safest neighborhoods—reported feeling little trust in his officers. It was Malin’s job to figure out why. “I look at that, and I am like, ‘Okay? What’s causing this?’” he said.

Show and tell: The NYPD should make a good-faith effort to comply with the Manhattan DA's request for data
7/15/2018

The NYPD and Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance’s office are locked in a bitter standoff over what information cops will turn over to prosecutors, and when and how that handoff happens.

The DA wants systematic electronic access to police disciplinary records and investigative files, including witness reports, to understand cases’ strengths and weaknesses, drop charges when appropriate, and, when the law requires, share evidence with defense attorneys. The police say they’re already being perfectly responsive, and claim Vance is overreaching dangerously by trying to get an unfiltered pipeline into the most sensitive files.

Confronting Implicit Bias in the New York Police Department
7/15/2018

An unarmed black man holding a cellphone, Stephon Clark, is fatally shot in his grandmother’s backyard in Sacramento and residents ask whether the officers only saw race when pulling their triggers 20 times.

Saheed Vassell, a mentally ill black man waving a pistol-shaped metal car part at pedestrians, is gunned down by police officers on a street in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and the outrage focuses on whether deep-seated prejudices fueled the quick use of deadly force.

Two black men are led in handcuffs from a Starbucks in Philadelphia and alarm bells go off: Had the officers unconsciously adopted the racial bias of the store employee who called the police?

While explicit bias remains part of the fabric of life in the United States, elected leaders and chiefs of police have increasingly focused on what is often called implicit bias, inherently unintentional yet more pervasive.

A Golden opportunity: to keep life-saving speed cameras alive

Will politicians let the NYPD stop the Bronx homicide wave?
7/12/2018

An 8 percent jump in homicides citywide is troubling; more worrisome is that it’s driven by a nearly 65 percent spike in the Bronx. We trust the NYPD to turn the numbers around — but can only hope it will have the full support of local politicians.

To be fair, the percentage increase is so big mostly because New York’s Finest have brought crime so far down over the last quarter-century: The 51 homicides in the Bronx in the first six months of the year is up just 20 over the same period in 2017.

City Limits: “Official stop numbers have plummeted since a groundbreaking federal lawsuit in 2013 ruled the NYPD’s stop and frisk tactics unconstitutional. But those statistics only reflect the most serious type of stop. Other encounters which don’t meet the standard of a high-level stop take place without leaving a trace in the public record.

What kind of horror will it take for the Assembly to OK banning serial pervs from the subway?

If you’re wondering why not a week now goes by without news of another perv groping, grinding, exposing or even attacking innocents on the subway, well: Blame the state Assembly.
