CCRB Issues Report on Claims of Improper Home Entries by NYPD Since 2010

As reported in the New York Times, the CCRB has issued a report analyzing complaints over a five-year period (2010-2015) regarding unlawful home entries and searches by NYPD officers. Not surprisingly, the CCRB concluded that the officers need a lot more training:

Recommendation: The Patrol Guide should be revised to contain a stand-alone section on the law of search and seizures at homes and businesses. The Police Student’s Guide should be revised to contain a stand-alone section that addresses the Payton rule as it applies to searches and seizures generally.
— CROSSING THE THRESHOLD: An Evaluation of Civilian Complaints of Improper Entries and Searches by the NYPD from January 2010 to October 2015

The report also noted a decrease in complaints over the five year period.
