Police Reform Project NYPD Bratton Racist Tactics


Dear Friends:

PROP recently released these principal findings regarding NYPD arrest practices for the first three months of 2016:** 2016 Arrest Data -- January-March -- Show that the NYPD continues the discriminatory practice of targeting low-income people of color for minor infractions.

** PROP finds that in 2016, 86.5% of misdemeanor arrests have involved people of color, compared to 85.6% in the first three months of 2015 and 85.4% in 2014.

** Misdemeanor arrests actually increased by about 2% in 2016. Arrests for the possession or sale of small amounts of marijuana increased significantly, by about 33.7%.

**Some arrests categories involve over 90% people of color: Theft of services (usually farebeating, and the highest category of arrests): 91.5%; marijuana possession and sale: 91.8%

**Misdemeanor arrests make up the large bulk of NYPD arrests, consisting in over 2/3rds of the arrests made.
** Over 51% of the NYPD's felony arrests involve black New Yorkers who make up 25.1% of the City's total population.

** Using the conservative estimate that one misdemeanor arrest costs the City $1750, the expense for NYPD misdemeanor arrest practices comes to over $900,000 per day.

While virtually all these numbers demonstrate that NYPD arrest practices are marked by waste and racial bias, the statistics that stand out for us involve arrests for misdemeanor marijuana offenses. While Mayor de Blasio, NYPD Commissioner Bratton, and other city officials have made widely publicized pronouncements about reducing punitive sanctions for marijuana infractions, the data present a different story. Arrests for these activities are actually on the rise -- by over 33% for the first three months of this year. Moreover, though research and experience demonstrate that white people use and sell marijuana in proportions and numbers equal to or greater than persons of color, nearly 92% of NYPD arrests for marijuana offenses in 2016 have involved New Yorkers of color. Time for the hypocrisy to stop and for our City's leaders to end these blatantly racist practices.

The complete set of arrest data on which PROP based its findings is available upon request.

Here is some recent press coverage regarding our findings:
