The New York Civil Liberties Union has launched an online database of policies from a number of police departments across the state. The idea is to bring internal policies and data to the public, along with accountability and transparency.
The NYCLU’s resource is called Behind the Badge. Wednesday’s launch contains information from seven police departments, among the largest — Albany, Buffalo, Nassau, Rochester, Suffolk, Syracuse and White Plains. New York City is not included. NYCLU lead policy counsel Michael Sisitzky says the site will include 16 additional departments by the fall.
