Tuesday, August 4, 2020. New York City – THE CITY has an interesting article. I suggest you to read it.
Josefa Velasquez, Greg B. and Reuven Blau wrote the article “The Complaint Files NYPD Unions Don’t Want You to See” on THE CITY.
This is part of the article, “The records obtained by THE CITY contain the details of more than 250 complaints against 13 officers.
NYPD vehicles may be emblazoned with the phrase “Courtesy, professionalism and respect,” but the complaint reports show very different perceptions about individual officers encountered.
Six years after the chokehold killing of Eric Garner, for which former Officer Daniel Pantaleo was fired only last year, and amid a protest movement demanding an NYPD overhaul following many more deaths of unarmed Black people across the nation, the complaints convey pain, anger and frustration about officers’ alleged misuse of their life-and-death power.
THE CITY’s examination found themes of alleged misconduct spanning boroughs and precincts, recurring across multiple complaints.
Many of the officers whose records THE CITY sought had also been named as defendants in lawsuits alleging misconduct. In a number of instances, the CCRB decided an allegation is “unsubstantiated,” without enough evidence to prove the allegations or clear the officer, but the city later settled lawsuits alleging the same bad behavior. Typically, these lawsuits are settled without an admission of liability or wrongdoing by the officers involved.
THE CITY obtained the complaint reports from the CCRB before a state judge and then a federal judge earlier this month imposed a restraining order that blocks many of the reports’ release while the unions press their case.”

Help Us Hold the NYPD Accountable
“Tell us (THE CITY) about your experience with the NYPD. Did you have an interaction with a certain officer that bothered you? Do certain cops have a reputation in your neighborhood? Have you ever filed a complaint? Have you ever been harassed and wanted to file a complaint but didn’t? Are you a police officer who’s tried to call out misconduct?”
