NEW YORK (AP) — New York City’s police commissioner is calling the City Council’s move to impose new oversight on the department misguided.
The legislators voted early Thursday to create an outside watchdog for the police department. Lawmakers also voted to make it easier to bring racial profiling claims against the nation’s largest police force.
Both bills passed with enough votes to override expected vetoes from Mayor Michael Bloomberg.
New York Police Department Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Thursday that the measures have the potential to increase crime and make officers’ jobs more difficult.
He says he does not question the motives of the Council members who voted in favor of the bills.
Kelly says the ramifications of the legislation may not have been thought out.
