[Metro] NYPD organized 'large scale' Black Lives Matter surveillance and kept activist photos years

Loyda Colon, co-director of Justice Committee and Communities United for Police Reform, said in a statement that the committee condemns any attempt by the NYPD “to surveil, interfere with, and/or criminalize New Yorkers’ efforts to increase community safety by engaging in Cop Watch.”

“The NYPD's political spying, including on those that engaged in monitoring and documenting the NYPD during police accountability protests is dangerous and concerning,” they added. “Monitoring and documenting police activity to deter abuse – a practice we call Cop Watch – is legal and constitutionally protected.”
