Civil Rights Implications of 'Broken Windows' Policing in NYC and General NYPD Accountability to the Public [open pdf - 2MB]
"On March 20 and 21, 2017, the New York State Advisory Committee to the United States Commission on Civil Rights (the 'Committee') held a briefing (the 'Briefing') on 'broken windows' policing in New York City ('NYC' or the 'City'), as well as the accountability structures and oversight mechanisms governing the New York City Police Department (the 'NYPD'). The Committee focused its inquiry on whether low-level NYPD enforcement disproportionately affects communities of color in NYC, and particularly the youth in those communities. At the same time, the Committee invited comment on the accountability structures and mechanisms of the NYPD and how they affect both police officer behavior and the public's perception of the NYPD."
