Three tenants who say cops forced them to sign away their rights are challenging the NYPD’s use of the city’s nuisance abatement law.
The New York Police Department has continued some of the most controversial elements of its nuisance abatement program.
The NYPD has begun nearly every nuisance abatement case by requesting an order locking the occupants out of their home.
Bratton defended the department's use of nuisance abatement actions, in response to an investigation that found many of the NYPD's targets were bodegas accused of selling alcohol to minors.
The NYPD is going to be “changing very quickly” a key part of its process initiating nuisance abatement actions, said top cop Bill Bratton.
