Tracking Enforcement Rates in New York City, 2003-2014

The third report, Tracking Enforcement Rates in New York City, 2003-2014 examined longitudinal trends for the various types of enforcement actions that bring the public into contact with law enforcement. The types of enforcement actions that were included in the report were: the issuance of criminal summonses, pedestrian stops (i.e. stop, question, and frisk), and misdemeanor and felony arrests. This report analyzed trends by demographic characteristics (age, gender, and race/ethnicity) as a rate in comparison to the City-wide rate in New York City. This allowed us to illustrate relative comparisons by demographic groups to the rest of the City. Unlike prior reports, this report did not include charges, dispositions, or sentences.
