Community officials and advocates gathered at City Hall on Wednesday to call for legislation that would ensure more accountability and transparency from the New York City Police Department.
How Many Stops Act
The How Many Stops Act will bring critical and urgent transparency to the NYPD’s daily activities in New York City communities. It consists of two common sense, good government bills that will require a comprehensive accounting of all NYPD street stops, investigative encounters, and consent searches - including for the purposes of DNA collection - and ensure that the hard won Right to Know Act is protected. The data collected via these two bills is crucial for completing the picture of what policing really looks like in our City.
