The Newark Department of Public Safety’s Police Division (“NPD”) has released drafts of its revised Stop, Search and Arrest policies for community review and comment. The proposed revisions are the culmination of a joint effort between the NPD, the City of Newark (“City”), the Department of Justice (“DOJ”), and the Independent Monitoring Team.
On April 25, 2018, NPD hosted a community forum at Jehovah-Jireh Praise & Worship Church Center, located at 505 S 15th Street, Newark, NJ 07103. During the forum, NPD presented its draft Stop policy to the community for review and comment. NPD will present its Search and Arrest policies at community forums on May 2, 2018 and May 9, 2018 respectively.
