How Many Stops Act: Top cop Edward Caban hoping police reporting bill can be tweaked before taking effect in summer

Police Commissioner Edward Caban said Wednesday that he remains hopeful changes will be made before the summer enactment of the How Many Stops Act, the police reporting bill that became law Tuesday when the City Council overrode Mayor Eric Adams’ veto.

Caban and other police brass spoke upon the controversial legislation on Jan. 31 less than 24 hours after the City Council approved the override. The new law requires officers to log nearly every interaction with the public while investigating a crime or a missing persons case.
