BuzzFeed News has obtained and published a database of nearly 18,000 New York Police Department disciplinary findings amid a fight over whether city police disciplinary records should remain secret


NEW YORK (AP) -- BuzzFeed News has obtained and published a database of nearly 18,000 New York Police Department disciplinary findings amid a fight over whether city police disciplinary records should remain secret.

It published the leaked records of NYPD employees on its website on Monday, saying there's an "overwhelming public interest" in them.

NYPD officials stopped providing disciplinary proceeding outcomes in 2016, though they'd previously done so for decades. The secrecy is the result of a state law protecting the privacy of officer disciplinary records and a city decision to adhere to the confidentiality rules more closely.

The database shows various offenses, from tardiness to excessive force. Penalties ranged from loss of vacation days to removal from the police department, the nation's largest.
