Description

This is a demonstration project and does not represent the universe of data of police misconduct in New York City. It represents data from three sources: payroll information through NYC's Open Data Portal and FOIL; BuzzFeed’s 2018 publication of disciplinary summaries from 2011-2015; and federal lawsuits filed in the Southern and Eastern Districts of New York from January 2015-June 2018. In addition to gathering publicly available documents online, we did an additional review of these documents and occasionally redacted personal information, names of minors, social security numbers and addresses unrelated to the incident underlying the lawsuit. To the extent we have additional lawsuits that preceded January 1, 2015 or come after June 30, 2018, they were also typically learned about through searches on PACER or other public websites. These lawsuits are viewable on individual officer pages but will not be found through the sorting or filtering features on the lawsuit, command, officer or network of association pages.
