NYPD disbands plainclothes anti-crime unit in nod to reform

The NYPD announced Monday it’s disbanding its anti-crime unit that was involved in the 2014 death of Eric Garner and have long been criticized for aggressive tactics. Commissioner Dermot Shea said 600 plainclothes officers from the unit will be reassigned to other teams. The move came following criticism of the department over the tactics used against protesters during the recent demonstrations.
