PBA Public Safety Tracker

Policy Actions Have Consequences on the Street

New York City police officers come to work each day with one goal in mind: to make every block in every neighborhood safe for every New Yorker. We’ve made tremendous gains over the past two decades, but the job is far from finished.

NYC’s real public safety experts are people like you. You see what’s happening on your block, and you hear every day  about crime and disorder occurring around the city.  You know that the "Safest Big City in America" doesn't feel that way in every neighborhood.

The only public safety and policing agenda that should matter is yours — but all too often, that’s not the agenda being discussed on the steps of City Hall. The result is bad public safety policy that normalizes criminal behavior and deprives police officers on the street of the tools we need to protect you, your family and your neighbors.

This public safety tracker will highlight notable crime incidents in context, alongside current crime trends and the broader policy discussion.  You can use this information to make sure your voice is heard: speak out about conditions in your neighborhood, contact your elected officials and tell them they need to make safe streets a priority.

Sign up to receive PBA updates on important public safety issues.

Share your thoughts about conditions in your neighborhood (To report specific crimes, call 911. To report specific quality-of-life issues, dial 311 or contact your Neighborhood Coordination Officer).

Gang Databases Are the Latest Controversial Policing Tool
7/26/2018

— Wall Street Journal: Politicians and advocates in major cities are scrutinizing police departments for the way they label and track suspected gang members, saying the methods lack oversight and unfairly expose minorities to the criminal justice system.

How a 'Sentiment Meter' Helps Cops Understand Their Precincts
7/16/2018

THREE WEEKS INTO his new job as commanding officer of Manhattan’s 20th precinct, Captain Timothy J. Malin stared at a map on his computer screen, puzzled. It showed his jurisdiction carved up by streets and parks, with the southern edge encased in an ominous shade of red.

For decades, the New York Police Department has used real-time statistics to chart spikes in violence and calibrate police activity across the city. This map, however, displayed not crime data but something new in the arsenal of police metrics: public approval. The crimson on Malin’s map indicated that some residents in his precinct, the Upper West Side—one of New York City’s wealthiest and safest neighborhoods—reported feeling little trust in his officers. It was Malin’s job to figure out why. “I look at that, and I am like, ‘Okay? What’s causing this?’” he said.

Show and tell: The NYPD should make a good-faith effort to comply with the Manhattan DA's request for data
7/15/2018

The NYPD and Manhattan District Attorney Cy Vance’s office are locked in a bitter standoff over what information cops will turn over to prosecutors, and when and how that handoff happens.

The DA wants systematic electronic access to police disciplinary records and investigative files, including witness reports, to understand cases’ strengths and weaknesses, drop charges when appropriate, and, when the law requires, share evidence with defense attorneys. The police say they’re already being perfectly responsive, and claim Vance is overreaching dangerously by trying to get an unfiltered pipeline into the most sensitive files.

Confronting Implicit Bias in the New York Police Department
7/15/2018

An unarmed black man holding a cellphone, Stephon Clark, is fatally shot in his grandmother’s backyard in Sacramento and residents ask whether the officers only saw race when pulling their triggers 20 times.

Saheed Vassell, a mentally ill black man waving a pistol-shaped metal car part at pedestrians, is gunned down by police officers on a street in Crown Heights, Brooklyn, and the outrage focuses on whether deep-seated prejudices fueled the quick use of deadly force.

Two black men are led in handcuffs from a Starbucks in Philadelphia and alarm bells go off: Had the officers unconsciously adopted the racial bias of the store employee who called the police?

While explicit bias remains part of the fabric of life in the United States, elected leaders and chiefs of police have increasingly focused on what is often called implicit bias, inherently unintentional yet more pervasive.

Why Washington Square Park is still riddled with drug addicts

A Golden opportunity: to keep life-saving speed cameras alive
7/13/2018

We sure hope the whiplash didn't hurt state Sen. Marty Golden too much.

Will politicians let the NYPD stop the Bronx homicide wave?
7/12/2018

An 8 percent jump in homicides citywide is troubling; more worrisome is that it’s driven by a nearly 65 percent spike in the Bronx. We trust the NYPD to turn the numbers around — but can only hope it will have the full support of local politicians.

To be fair, the percentage increase is so big mostly because New York’s Finest have brought crime so far down over the last quarter-century: The 51 homicides in the Bronx in the first six months of the year is up just 20 over the same period in 2017.

De Blasio lets fellow pols blindside O’Neill during NYPD crime briefing

But those statistics only reflect the most serious type of stop. Other encounters which don’t meet the standard of a high-level stop take place without leaving a trace in the public record.
