Letter to Gov. Cuomo to Support Full Repeal of Police Secrecy Law/50-a

In a letter to Governor Cuomo on January 6, 2020, sixty-four civil rights, good government and community organizations from across the state of New York called for a full, statewide repeal of New York’s Section 50-a, a counterproductive provision in state law that protects police secrecy, including in cases of misconduct and abuse.  A full repeal of 50-a will increase the transparency of police misconduct and allow communities timely access to important misconduct and discipline records across the state. Repeal of 50-a is a key priority of the Safer New York Act legislative package, organized by Communities United for Police Reform (CPR).  Read full press release. >
