PBA statement on latest court order in stop, question and frisk lawsuit

Today, the U.S. District Court judge overseeing the settlement in the stop, question and frisk lawsuits against the City of New York entered the attached order. The order requires the NYPD to implement “a program for systematically receiving, assessing, and acting on information regarding adverse findings on the conduct of police officers involving illegal stops or illegal trespass enforcements.”

PBA President Patrick J. Lynch said:

“Once again, the Court is leveraging its narrow authority over street stops and trespass enforcement to impose sweeping changes on the NYPD’s operations and daily management. This most recent order is completely unnecessary, because the Court and other police oversight entities have long since made their message to police officers clear: they want an end to proactive policing in New York City.”
