NYPD Commish To Force: Don't Brush Off Crime Victims
January 23, 2012
New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly laid out detailed procedures for officers when someone wants to report a crime in an operational order issued last week.
The Jan. 17 order, which was obtained by the New York Daily News, also warns cops to eliminate excuses for not taking complaints from victims.
The memo urges police officers not to refer crime victims to another precinct if the crimes didn't happen in their command. And Kelly reminds cops not to tell people to return to crime scenes and call 911 after they've come to a police station to report a crime.
