A Local Law to amend the administrative code of the city of New York in relation to requiring the police department of the city of New York to submit certain information to the City Council and to adhere to certain reporting requirements.
 
 
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 to add a new section 14-150 to read as follows:
      § 14-150.  Police Department Reporting Requirements.
      a.  The New York City Police Department shall submit to the city council on a quarterly basis the following materials, data and reports:
      1.      All academy, in-service, roll-call and other specialized department training materials and amendments thereto distributed to cadets, recruits, officers and other employees of the department, except where disclosure of such material would reveal non-routine investigative techniques or confidential information or where disclosure could compromise the safety of the public or police officers or could otherwise compromise law enforcement investigations or operations.
      2.      All patrol guide procedures newly promulgated or revised.
      3.      A report detailing the number of uniformed personnel and civilian personnel assigned to each and every patrol borough and operational bureau performing an enforcement function within the police department, including, but not limited to, each patrol precinct, housing police service area, transit district and patrol borough street crime unit, as well as the narcotics division, fugitive enforcement division and the special operations division, including its subdivisions, but shall not include internal investigative commands and shall not include undercover officers assigned to any command.
      4.      A crime status report.  Such report shall include the total number of crime complaints (categorized by class of crime, indicating whether the crime is a misdemeanor or felony) for each patrol precinct, including a subset of housing bureau and transit bureau complaints within each precinct; arrests (categorized by class of crime, indicating whether the arrest is for a misdemeanor or felony) for each patrol precinct, housing police service area, transit district, street crime unit and narcotics division; summons activity (categorized by type of summons, indicating whether the summons is a parking violation, moving violation, environmental control board notice of violation, or criminal court summons) for each patrol precinct, housing police service area and transit district; domestic violence radio runs for each patrol precinct; average response time for critical and serious crimes in progress for each patrol precinct; overtime statistics for each patrol borough and operational bureau performing an enforcement function within the police department, including, but not limited to, each patrol precinct, housing police service area, transit district and patrol borough street crime unit, as well as the narcotics division, fugitive enforcement division and the special operations division, including its subdivisions, but shall not include internal investigative commands and shall not include undercover officers assigned to any command.
      5.      A report based on the information provided in the department's Stop, Question and Frisk Report Worksheet and any successor form or worksheet.  Such report shall include the number of stop, question and frisks for each patrol precinct, housing police service area, transit district, street crime unit and narcotics division; a breakdown of the number of stop, question and frisks by race and gender for each patrol precinct, housing police service area, transit district, street crime unit and narcotics division; the number of suspects arrested or issued a summons as indicated on each stop, question and frisk report for each patrol precinct, housing police service area, transit district, street crime unit and narcotics division; a breakdown by race and gender of the suspects arrested or issued a summons as indicated on each stop, question and frisk report for each patrol precinct, housing police service area, transit district, street crime unit and narcotics division; a listing, by category, of the factors leading to the stop, question and frisk for each patrol precinct, housing police service area, transit district, street crime unit and narcotics division, with a breakdown by race and gender for each listed factor; and a summary of complaints of violent felony crime for each patrol precinct, with a breakdown by race and gender of the suspect as identified by the victim.
      6.      A report, for each patrol precinct, housing police service area, transit district, street crime unit and narcotics division, of the number of summonses issued for moving violations, with a breakdown by race and gender.  Such report shall be generated using data provided by the State Department of Motor Vehicles at such time as the State Department of Motor Vehicles amends its traffic summons to reflect such race and gender information.
      7.      A report of the number of positions that are civilianizable, including a listing of each position by job title, and the number of positions that were civilianized. "Civilianizable" shall mean any position that does not require uniformed expertise.
b.  The information, data and reports requested in subdivision a shall be provided to the council except where disclosure of such material could compromise the safety of the public or police officers or could otherwise compromise law enforcement operations.  These reports shall be provided to the council within 30 days of the end of the reporting period to which the reports correspond or for which the relevant data may be collected, whichever is later.  Where necessary, the department may use preliminary data to prepare the required reports, and may include an acknowledgment that such preliminary data is non-final and subject to change.
      § 2. If any section, subsection, sentence, clause, phrase or other portion of this local law is, for any reason, declared unconstitutional or invalid, in whole or in part, by any court of competent jurisdiction, such portion shall be deemed severable, and such unconstitutionality or invalidity shall not affect the validity of the remaining portions of this law, which remaining portions shall continue in full force and effect.
      § 3. This local law shall take effect sixty days after which it shall have become a law.
