CPR, NYC Organizations & National Homeless Advocates Call for Investigations into NYPD’s Policing of Homeless New Yorkers

Communities United for Police Reform – with support from over 50 local advocacy/community organizations and national homeless advocacy organizations – requested that NYPD Inspector General Philip Eure conduct an official investigation of the NYPD’s policing and treatment of homeless New Yorkers.  Community members, homeless NYers and advocates announced the request at City Hall, with a call for an end to the discriminatory & abusive policing of homeless New Yorkers.
