Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

Section 1. Title 14 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 14-159 to read as follows:

                     § 14-159. Use of force encounter reports.

a. Definitions.  The following terms have the following meanings:

Basis for encounter. The term "basis for encounter" means the conduct, offense or reason which formed the basis for the initial approach by a member of the department that led to police action, including an arrest, criminal summons, civil summons, or desk appearance ticket.

Use of force incident. The term “use of force incident” has the same meaning as set forth in subdivision a of section 14-158. 

b. Use of force encounter report. The department shall post on its website within 30 days of the beginning of each quarter a report of the number of use of force incidents for the prior quarter disaggregated by basis for encounter.  

                      § 2. This local law takes effect immediately, provided that the first quarterly report required by subdivision b of section 14-159 of the administrative code of the city of New York, as added by the local law that added such section, is due within 30 days of the quarter ending June 30, 2017.
