RAMAPO, N.Y. -- The New York Civil Liberties Union will receive unredacted police documents from Ramapo they have been seeking for more than 14 months dealing with allegations against the Ramapo Police Department for excessive use of force and other actions, according to lohud.com.
The union requested the reports as part of a federal civil rights lawsuit by four state parole officers, who said their civil rights were violated by Ramapo police during a traffic stop in 2014, said lohud.com.
The Freedom of Information Act request focused on the department's use of force and car stops, in addition to details of detentions, the use of surveillance techniques and how they discipline officers, added lohud.com.
As part of the settlement reached Monday, the department also will pay $3,000 in legal fees to the New York Civil Liberties Union, reported lohud.com.
