Int. No.

By Council Member Kallos


To amend the New York city charter, in relation to adding violations to the interactive crime map.

Be it enacted by the Council as follows:

Section 1. Subdivision r of section 1072 of the New York city charter is amended to read as follows:

r. to provide to the public, at no charge on the city's website, an interactive crime and violation map that, for each segment of a street bounded by one or more intersections and/or a terminus, shall visually display, and provide in a machine readable format, the aggregate monthly, yearly and year-to-date totals for the current and the most recent prior calendar years for every non-criminal summons, violation, or ticket given out by a city governmental entity, as well as each class of crime that is reported to the New York city police department, or for which an arrest was made, including crimes that occurred in parks and subway stations. Such map shall display the location of each summons, violation, ticket, crime, and arrest with as much specificity as possible, including latitude and longitude if possible, but in all cases at least as specific as the nearest intersection, as well as date and time information. Such map shall be searchable by address, zip code, and patrol precinct. All information required by this subdivision shall be available on the city's website as soon as practicable possible but in no case more than one month after a summons, violation, or ticket has been issued, arrest has been made, or crime complaint has been filed. The mayor shall ensure that all agencies provide the department with such assistance and information as the department requires to compile and update the interactive crime and violation map.

§2. This local law shall take effect sixty days after its enactment into law.
