Description

This three-part series -- part of WNYC's ongoing NYPD Bruised project -- examined how often NYPD officers lie, what the department does about it and the overall impact on the criminal justice system. WNYC identified more than 120 officers with a documented credibility issue in the past decade. Many stayed on the street where they continued to make arrests. Their word -- in sworn statements -- put people in prison. Defendants often never learn if the officer accusing them of a crime has a history of lying despite a constitutional right to such information. WNYC also found the NYPD and prosecutors have failed to make simple fixes to address the problem. As part of the series, WNYC produced a first-of-its-kind map and chart showing the laws and court precedents governing disclosure of police disciplinary records in all 50 states. http://www.wnyc.org/story/police-misconduct-records/
