Report on Arrests Arising from the New York City Police Departmentäó»s Stop-and-Frisk Practices
Eric T. Schneiderman (ed)
This report analyzes the New York City Police Departmentäó»s stop and frisk program by studying and tracking the arrests that result from stops. This is the first such analysis of what happens to individuals and institutions following these arrests. While the constitutionality of the stop and frisk program has been the subject of litigation and significant debate, its efficacy has been less closely scrutinized, and this report helps to fill that gap. In analyzing close to 150,000 arrests that resulted from approx. 2.4 million stops between 2009 and 2012, the report concludes that roughly half of those arrests, or just 3% of stops, led to guilty pleas or convictions at trial. In addition, just 0.3 of stops led to jail sentences of more than 30 days, and 0.1% led to convictions for a violent crime. The report also finds widespread consequences for arrestees and criminal justice institutions, including litigation costs incurred by the city, and various harms even to individuals arrested for misdemeanors. Figures and tables. This is a print on demand report.
