Testimony on the NYPD’s Strategic Response Group

The NYCLU provided testimony before the New York City Council Committee on Public Safety regarding the NYPD’s Strategic Response Group (SRG). SRG officers are escalators-in chief: they abuse their mandate to consistently escalate and bring violence to protesters who are exercising their first amendment rights. Reducing the scope of the NYPD’s policing of protest is critical, and that begins with disbanding the SRG.

As bold as the spirit of New York, we are the NYCLU.
