NYCLU: NYPD Stop-and-Frisk Panel is PR, Not Reform

NEW YORK, NY - JANUARY 27:  Opponents of the N...

Opponents of the New York Police Department’s controversial ‘stop-and-frisk’

In a story in The Wall Street Journal, the New York City Police Department (NYPD) has announced the creation of an advisory panel with 12 hand-picked representatives from the community as its response to the groundswell of opposition that has emerged against the Department’s unlawful and discriminatory stop-and-frisk program, a move dismissed by the leadership of the New York Civil Liberties Union.

“The out of control stop-and-frisk program demands a major overhaul, not a PR campaign. And the NYPD needs an Inspector General to ensure independent oversight and accountability, not a cherry-picked community panel,” said NYCLU Executive Director Donna Lieberman. “The police commissioner has sworn complaints in four major class-action lawsuits in front of him and a scathing decision by a federal judge just a few weeks ago. The facts are out there. What’s missing are the reforms.”

In response to discriminatory policing practices like the abuse of stop-and-frisk, the NYCLU and our allies in Communities United for Police Reform are working to pass the Community Safety Act, a series of City Council bills that would…

  • strengthen the definition of discrimination,
  • ensure that New Yorkers understand their right to not consent to searches where no probable cause or warrant exists,
  • require that NYPD officers identify themselves when conducting stop-and-frisks or engaging in other police activities, and
  • create an NYPD Inspector General’s office.
