New York Times: N.Y.P.D. Releases Secret Misconduct Records After Repeal of Shield Law
New York Times: N.Y.P.D. Releases Secret Misconduct Records After Repeal of Shield Law. “Nearly nine months after New York lawmakers, inspired by mass protests over police brutality, repealed a law that kept the discipline records of officers secret for decades, the New York Police Department on Monday began publishing some of the sealed information. The department released partial disciplinary records for all 35,000 active police officers dating back to 2014 in an online database, searchable by name. Separately, officials posted redacted copies of more than 200 decisions by judges in administrative trials, going back to 2017.” It’s my understanding that this is a separate release (though it may contain overlapping information) from the CCRB release last week.
