Civil Liberties Union Seeks Police Data In Suit Against Ramapo

RAMAPO, N. Y. -- Officials with the New York Civil Liberties Union, who filed suit this week to get unfiltered police data from the Ramapo Police Department, said releasing more detail about how police do their jobs would help would help the department's relationship with the community, lohud.com reports.

The organization is asking a state court to force the department to provide unredacted material about officer discipline, use of force, car stops and other police matters. But Ramapo officials say they stand by their decision to withhold information that may jeopardize officer safety, lohud.com says.

The records request came after state parole officers filed a lawsuit against Ramapo police over a stop in 2014, though a judge recently dismissed civil rights complaints against Ramapo. NYCLU officials made the request as part of their Police Report Card Project to look at police department data statewide, lohud.com reports.
