Coverage of our NYPD Gang Database Press Conference
THURSDAY, OCTOBER 19, 2017

The Legal Aid Society and others held a press conference yesterday calling on the NYPD to terminate its overzealous gang database, which unfairly targets youth of color.

The organizations also announced a freedom of information request sent to the NYPD demanding more information on the Department’s "gang" databases including NYPD regulations and guidelines, as well as definitions for a gang, gang member, gang associate and gang-related activity.
