New York City Police Disband "Anti-Crime Unit" Of Plainclothes Officers Amid Reform Pressures

The New York Police Department is disbanding its aggressive anti-crime unit.

The unit was originally aimed at turning alienated residents into crime-stopping allies.

A nationwide push for policing reforms followed the killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor.

In a major redeployment, the country’s largest police force will reassign some 600 plainclothes officers.
