Fewer People Unhappy With NYC Police


We might not be able to get rid of the snow quickly, but New York City is faring well by one measure: The Civilian Complaint Review Board reported there were fewer complaints about police behavior in the past six months than in any other six-month period since 2005. In the past six months, there were 3,314 misconduct complaints, down from 4,017 misconduct complaints filed in the same six-month period in 2009. And just because a complaint was filed doesn’t mean a case was pursued. Of the cases filed with the CCRB in the first half of 2010, only 105 were substantiated and handed over to the NYPD for possible action.
