NYPD Tests "Information Cards" for Non-Arrest Stops

August 25, 2015 | | Capital New York |

The co-counsel in the case, Jenn Rolnick-Borchetta of Demos, a progressive policy organization, told POLITICO New York, the need to give information to people who have been stopped by the police “has been ordered, but what that is going to look like isn’t yet figured out.”

“The pilot form has a blank space for officers to fill in their information," said Borchetta, who said that creates a potential problem because “we know officers don’t give their info, or the right info.”

She also said she wanted to “connect” the receipt an officer gives to a suspect to the paperwork an officer ultimately submits to the NYPD about a particular incident.

“London issues an actual carbon copy … I don’t know if that happens to be the answer in New York, especially if New York is trying to use less paper,” she said.
