Two influential City Council members took dead aim at the NYPD’s controversial stop-and-frisk policy on Wednesday, saying there is “serious concern” privacy rights are being violated.
In a letter to Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly, City Council Speaker Christine Quinn (D-Manhattan) and City Councilman Peter Vallone Jr. (D-Queens) criticized the NYPD’s policy of saving personal information of people who are stopped and questioned but not charged with any wrongdoing.
Compiling such information in a database “raises significant privacy-right concerns and suggests that these innocent people are more likely to be targeted in future criminal investigations,” they wrote.
