New Stop and Frisk Forms Receive Support from New York Civil Rights Violation Lawyer


New York civil rights violation lawyer David Perecman supports the change to New York Police Department stop and frisk forms. The new forms will include a field called “Reason for Force Used.” This addition will require police officers who participate in a stop and frisk to give an explanation for their actions.

“There is a need for more accountability, oversight and reform in the NYPD’s use of stop-and-frisk, and every improvement helps,” said Perecman, a New York civil rights violation lawyer for over 30 years.

Police made the change after reviewing the results of a study designed to evaluate how officers stop, question and frisk people.

New York State law allows a police officer to stop, question and frisk a person he or she reasonably suspects has committed, is committing or is about to commit a crime.

Stop and frisk practices are among the most controversial police procedures. The use of this practice has led to many accusations of civil rights violations in New York, including racial profiling and privacy rights.
