In response to New York City Council Speaker Corey Johnson’s call to repeal Civil Rights Law 50-a, which would allow public disclosure of records relating to police misconduct, VOCAL-NY released the following statement, attributable to Roger Clark, Community Leader at VOCAL-NY.

“Right now, in NYC, there is no transparency with the disciplinary process of NYPD. And officers are not held accountable for lying at trial. that behavior must be exposed and eliminated, which will remain impossible while 50a is on the books. We agree with Speaker Corey Johnson that 50a MUST be repealed in Albany this year,” said VOCAL-NY Community Leader Roger Clark.
