New York City’s Police Department is the latest in a growing number of departments around the country to acknowledge the challenges and challenges posed by protests that have sprung up across the country.
The NYPD is one of many police departments to admit that they face challenges dealing with the movement, which has erupted in response to police brutality and discrimination against African-Americans.
On Wednesday, the department’s Commissioner James O’Neill, told reporters that his department has had to adjust its tactics and procedures for the protests.
“We’re not going to be able to solve every problem,” O’Neil said.
“But I do think that as we have seen with the protests, we’ve done a good job of not just understanding and responding to the protests and dealing with them, but also working with our partners in other departments to make sure we do things to make it as safe and as efficient as possible.”
As protests have become increasingly violent, New York’s police have become even more militarized.
They’ve also become more aggressive, sometimes even resorting to deadly force.
In some instances, the officers have been seen using pepper spray, which is illegal under state law.
The NYPD has been accused of using excessive force and excessive force has been called into question.
The New York Post reports that the police department has used at least 30 pepper spray attacks in the past two weeks alone.
The Post also reported that one officer was injured in a hit-and-run, and several people were injured in confrontations with police.
The department has also been under increased scrutiny since last year, when a grand jury decided not to indict a white police officer in the death of Eric Garner.
The grand jury’s decision left many residents and activists frustrated with the NYPD.
