NYPD Responds to Criticism after the Death of Two Cyclists

Chief Chan as well as his direct reports and the head of the Collision Investigation unit were on hand to discuss the various issues raised after the death of two cyclist in CB4 in June.

NYPD confirmed that their current procedure is to not comment on a crash, either at the crash site or at headquarters until the investigation has progressed to the point where the information is reliable . This being said, they acknowledged that there is tremendous pressure to be transparent, therefore they also try to communicate as soon as feasible.

Finally it is understood they cannot 100% control ALL agents or police officers, and prevent individuals to speak off the record.

They shared statistics of enforcement of bus companies which show they are doing a lot in this area. NYPD committed to double down as needed. The community needs to continue call 311 ( choose “illegal parking” ) for any bus that is laying over illegally
