A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York, in relation to requiring the New York City Police Department to collect and report data regarding arrests arising out of domestic incidents.
 
 
Be it enacted by the Council as follows:
      Section 1. Chapter 1 of title 14 of the administrative code of the city of New York is amended by adding a new section 14-150 to read as follows:
      § 14-150. Mandatory data collection and reporting on arrests arising out of domestic incidents.  The commissioner shall collect data on all incidents in which a police officer is required to prepare and file a written report upon investigating a crime or offense between members of the same family or household, as mandated by the criminal procedure law and the commissioner's regulations.  Such data shall include, for each domestic incident report filed, whether the police made an arrest or whether the police did not make an arrest, how many members of the family or household were arrested, as well as the gender, race, ethnicity of the officers and family or household members involved.  This data shall also include whether the family or household members speak a language other than English and which language is spoken, if known, and whether any of the police officers involved speak such language.  The commissioner shall report this information to the City Council once every six months.  
      § 2. This local law shall become effective 60 days after its enactment into law.
