The How Many Stops Act is a NYC legislative package containing two common sense police reform bills that will bring critical and urgent transparency to the NYPD’s daily activities in NYC communities.
The How Many Stops Act includes the following City Council bills:
- Intro 586 — Requires the NYPD to report on Level 1 and 2 police stops, investigative encounters in which officers ask questions but do not have “reasonable suspicion” of criminal activity
- Intro 538 — Requires the NYPD to report a fuller set of data about their use of consent searches — stops in which an NYPD officer asks permission to conduct a search of a person or their belongings.
This data collected via these two bills is crucial for completing the picture of what policing really looks like in New York City.
