Morgenthau Rips Council's NYPD Reform Bill

Thursday, October 25, 2012

Former District Attorney Robert Morgenthau ripped the City Council’s proposal to create an NYPD monitor – one of a series of proposals aimed at increasing oversight over the department.

In an op-ed published in the Daily News on Thursday, Morgenthau called the bill to create a position of inspector general “misguided” and said the existing Civilian Complaint Review Board, Internal Affairs Bureau and Department of Investigation already provide enough oversight.

“There is more comprehensive oversight of the New York City Police Department than of any other police department in the country, if not the world,” he wrote.

The bill is part of a package introduced earlier this year that includes changes how the controversial stop and frisk tactic is executed and to increase police accountability.
