Who's Policing the Police?

-A +A

[New York News]

You've read the headlines and seen the videos: A cop caught repeatedly beating a man curled up on the street.

An officer spotted delivering a vicious shoulder check to a biker in Times Square. The stories are shocking, but the New York Police Department's response is all too often unsurprising: It regularly turns a blind eye to officer misconduct.

But there's momentum building in New York City to strengthen oversight of the NYPD. In just the past month, the City Council has introduced two bills that would give some muscle to the Civilian Complaint Review Board (CCRB), the city body intended to provide accountability for acts of police misconduct.

As part of the NYCLU's continuing Civil Liberties Discussion Series, NYCLU Legislative Director Robert Perry will discuss ways to deal with NYPD misconduct and how to have real oversight over the police. Please join on Tuesday, April 6 at 7 p.m. at the NYCLU offices at 125 Broad Street on the 19th floor.

Following the presentation, the NYCLU will discuss how to work together to achieve meaningful reform of New York City's Civilian Complaint Review Board. Pizza will be provided to get the conversation going.

Please be sure to RSVP by emailing discussionseries@nyclu.org or calling (212) 607-3358.
