As CBS 2’s Tony Aiello reported, the NYPD announced Tuesday that police Commissioner Bill Bratton decided to disband the “Demographics Unit” after he took office – following a review determined that its intelligence could be gathered in other ways.

“Our administration has promised the people of New York a police force that keeps our city safe, but that is also respectful and fair, » the Mayor’s office said in a statement. « This reform is a critical step forward in easing tensions between the police and the communities they serve, so that our cops and our citizens can help one another go after the real bad guys.”
