The New York Police Department (NYPD) is on track to spend far more in lawsuit payouts than in any year in recent history – more than $67 million to date – according to an analysis of newly published city data by the Legal Aid Society, reports Gothamist. The police department has already paid more through July than it did in all of 2020, and it has nearly surpassed the total for 2019. In recent years, the total for lawsuits has hovered between $60 million and $90 million. Those payouts reportedly accounted for 37 percent of the city’s resolved civil cases that year.

Meanwhile, the The New York Times reports that Charles M. Guria, a senior trial assistant district attorney in Brooklyn who investigated police corruption over the last three decades, will become the next inspector general for the New York City Police Department. Guria was part of a group that spent three years retraining the city’s 36,000 police officers on how to use stop-and-frisk tactics after a federal judge found that the city’s use of those tactics was racially discriminatory and unconstitutional in 2013.
