Police Commissioner Ray Kelly Announces New Study of NYPD Crime Statistics to Combat Criticism
A panel of former federal prosecutors will soon begin combing through NYPD crime stats to figure out if cops are cooking the books...Not everyone was convinced, especially because Kelly picked the panelists. "The panel members are respected lawyers," said Christopher Dunn, associate legal director for the New York Civil Liberties Union. "But no one will mistake them for police accountability activists. And ad-hoc, hand-picked panels like this are no substitute for real NYPD transparency."
