Upcoming Hearings on the Community Safety Act

We’re excited about the upcoming City Council hearings on the NYPD’s use of stop, question and frisk. Progressive Caucus Member Jumaane Williams is sponsoring a package of bills, with the support of the Progressive Caucus and many members of the City Council, that would address the need for more police accountability in NYC.

The Community Safety Act includes four bills: 

  • Int 0799-2012: A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring law enforcement officers to provide notice and obtain proof of consent to search individuals.
  • Int 0800-2012: A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to prohibiting bias-based profiling by law enforcement officers.
  • Int 0801-2012: A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York in relation to requiring law enforcement officers to identify themselves to the public.
  • Int 0881-2012: A Local Law to amend the New York city charter, in relation to establishing an office of the inspector general for the New York city police department.

Join us for next week’s hearing at City Hall (10/10, 10am) or at Brooklyn College the evening of October 23rd
