just 15% of New York Police Department arresting officers generate over 50% of all "resisting arrest" charges, while an even smaller group of just 5% accounted for over 40% of those incidents.
That statistics again: Just 5% of the entire NYPD (roughly 34,500 officers) were involved in over 40% of the city's "resisting arrest" incidents.
In the 51,000 cases that WNYC identified, over 20,000 were reported by that 5% of officers.
|Charges for most Downtown arrests have fluctuated over the|
past decade. Resisting arrest has seen significant growth.
