STATEMENT FROM COMMUNITIES UNITED FOR POLICE REFORM
Re: Recent Spate of NYPD Officers Involved in Alcohol-Related Shootings and DWIs
“These unfortunate incidents highlight the reality that a lack of accountability at the NYPD has enabled a culture in which some officers believe they are above the law. The long-term task of establishing meaningful accountability for the police department is essential to repairing the relationship between communities and the NYPD.”
