ProPublica Releases Thousands of NYPD Disciplinary Records

HeadlineJul 27, 2020

ProPublica has published the disciplinary records for thousands of New York City police officers — records that were, until recently, completely sealed off from the public. New York lawmakers voted in June to repeal the controversial “50-A” law that shielded the records, in the wake of George Floyd’s killing and amid the nationwide antiracist uprising. ProPublica obtained the records from New York City’s Civilian Complaint Review Board before a federal judge last week issued a restraining order, blocking the city from releasing the data. NYPD unions are suing to prevent the city from making the records public.
