Report: NYPD to Begin Handing Out Stop-and-Frisk Info Cards


nypd2Starting next month, city police officers reportedly will start handing out information cards to people they frisk but don’t arrest.

According to the New York Post, the new cards will be rolled out on September 21.

Officers must check boxes on the cards explaining why a stop was made, with reasons like suspicion of weapons possession or drug dealing.

The cards will also give the officer’s name, rank and shield number.

This mandate is one of the reforms recommended by the NYPD’s federal monitor, and was approved by a federal judge.
