NYPD officers have an enormous amount of power to impact the lives of thousands of New Yorkers every year. Though the department remains stubbornly resistant to full transparency and accountability, the NYCLU has obtained thousands of documents that shine an important light on the actions and abuses of NYPD officers. These documents – which include records of abuse allegations, stop-and-frisk data, and use of force reports – help paint a clearer picture of what one of the largest and most influential police departments on earth is up to.
