NYC Passes Bill Requiring Police Officers To Document Nearly Every Conversation They Have
Just imagine this: Every time you engage in a conversation with someone while at work, you would have to file a report. This goes for every conversation with just about everyone. That would suck. It would not make you want to talk to anyone while working because you would just be swamped with paperwork for every little thing you said. It would probably make you quit that job.
Now imagine a major city with this exact policy in place for its entire police force. That is what is happening to the NYPD.
“The New York City Council pushed through two controversial bills Wednesday that will see a ban on solitary confinement in Big Apple jails and force cops to file reports for every street stop they carry out — even the low-level ones.
The two bills, which were vehemently opposed by Mayor Eric Adams along with police and jail guard unions, passed with a veto-proof majority — meaning the legislation will likely not be quashed by Hizzoner and will become law.
‘The New York City Council has taken action today that, if implemented, will unquestionably make our city less safe,’ the mayor said in a statement about the passage of the so-called ‘How Many Stops Act.’
The measure, which passed with a 35-9 vote and three abstentions, will require cops to fill out detailed paperwork for every single person they come across during a probe, including making note of their race, age, and gender.
‘In every City Council district in this city, our officers will be forced to spend more time in their cars and on their phones, and less time walking the streets and engaging with New Yorkers,’ Adams added.”
New York is a crime-ridden cesspool. So of course the City Council is focusing on more ways of policing the police rather than prosecuting crime and cracking down on lawlnesness. One may even think that this is just another way to de facto have fewer police.
“The NYPD said the additional report logging would likely add ‘millions of dollars in overtime costs’ at a time when the Adams administration is already struggling to plug a gaping $7 billion budget gap.
Currently, cops are only required to issue reports for ‘Level 3’ investigative stops, which is when an officer has “reasonable suspicion” to detain someone, or stops involving arrests.
The bill will require officers to now log reports for both ‘Level 1’ and ‘Level 2’ encounters. A Level 1 stop, for example, could include questioning a possible witness, while a Level 2 encounter might be a potential suspect.
Public Advocate Jumaane Williams, who sponsored the legislation, argued that the new reports would provide a broader picture of who cops are stopping on the street," according to the outlet.
This legislation makes things harder for police and easier for criminals. But that is no surprise since progressives love criminals. There is no reason to be swamping police with more paperwork. Especially when officers are resigning at never-before-seen numbers and there are record-low applications.
Lawmakers say this is meant to increase transparency. But we know it's an anti-victim, anti-police policy. Because when you are anti-police, you are also anti-victim.
Can we please have a bill like this for all city officials? Can we have some transparency there as well?
What NYC needs is more proactive policing. But that is the last thing officials want.
