NYPD Will Now Run Criminal Checks on Domestic Abuse Victims

In a move that might discourage women from reporting domestic abuse, the NYPD has issued a new directive to its officers that they run a criminal check on both the accused and the accuser when responded to an abuse call. The New York Post is reporting that a new memo sent out by the Chief of Detectives Phil Pulaski "requires detectives to look at open warrants, complaint histories and even the driving records of both parties."

Advocates of abused women are worried that this new directive will dissuade women form reporting abuse, frightened of possibly being arrested for offenses like an outstanding traffic violation. Marilyn Chinitz, a lawyer who represents victims of domestic abuse told The Post that the directive "is very, very frightening." She continued, "It would absolutely dissuade people. They would not report a crime because they would fear getting locked up. It would empower the perpetrator, and there's going to be more domestic violence as a consequence, and you're endangering children."

Police officers speaking anonymously to The Post that they would feel pressure to arrest abuse victims, fearful of their superior officers finding out that they had not arrested someone who had an outstanding warrant or violation. "There's a lack of common sense in this department right now," a officer told The Post.

Reacting to The Post's story, NYPD spokesman Paul Browne released this statement about the story: "While it is standard practice and policy for detectives to investigate victims' backgrounds to help lead them to the victims' assailants, the NYPD - contrary to a published report - has no "must arrest" policy that applies to domestic violence victims. In fact, the discovery of open warrants on domestic violence victims often results in their warrants being vacated."

"Must arrest" or not, by looking into records of abuse victims, the NYPD risks further discouraging reports of abuse at a time when an astonishingly few cases of domestic violence are being reported.

    This is one thing the police are doing that I actually agree with.

    A lot of times women will get upset and call the law behind petty shit.

    Unless a man is just beating the shit out of a woman the law should never be involved in domestic disputes.

    This is good protocol in my opinion it keeps the police from wasting time and man power writing reports and taking folks to jail that will be back with the person who filed the charges in a short period of time and it discourages accusers from involving law enforcement in petty matters wasting their time when they could be solving more important issues.

    I say it's about time because some women just call the police just to win an argument. The law shouldn't be involved unless they're about to die . Too many men have gotten locked up or lost there jobs because the women

    A loved one of mine was the victim of his girl acting up and out and spiteful by calling the cops. Amazing man who was taking care of her and the minute the she felt like she was about to lose it all he ends up doing time for the first time ever in his life because of her. She is the only reason he even has any kind of a record, completely undeserved.

    If that ain't the definition of a trifling bird, well then I don't know what is.

    Once it's on record, regardless of innocence, employers, the city and state etc. don't care. There is a stigma which comes with that record, one that can turn folks lives into a nightmare.
    Hopefully with this being implemented it will cause some of these females to think twice before making false claims and messing with someone's life.

    I have a government job, and when the wife called the cops on me I could of lost my job, but luckily
    my case got dismissed because the D.A said there was a lack of evidence ( I didn't do it anyway ). Yea they need to amend that domestic violence law because you got these trifling women who take advantage of it because the cops will believe them over you. By the way I'm still with my wife, but here's the funny put the only reason she bailed me out was because she knew she couldn't pay any of the bills .lol

    Wish they'd bring it here to the state of Louisiana.

    I remember back in '08 this bird tried to body me then call the laws on me like I was trying to get physical with her.

    I'm thankful to this day I didn't go to jail nor get any charges pressed against me.

    A lot of guys aren't as lucky.

    Then you got that ish on your record which never goes away because some bird was trying to be petty and on that foolishness.
