10 Highlights from the 2022 New York City Stop, Question, and Frisk Data

 Around the end of March, the New York Police Department (NYPD) releases its annual Stop, Question, and Frisk (SQF) dataset, which contains information about police stops that occurred in the previous year.

In this Research Note, we take a first look at the newly released 2022 SQF data. The analysis explores trends in police stops over the last decade, spanning three mayoral administrations, and highlights year-over-year increases in 2022 in overall and weapons-related stops. 

 Later in 2023, DCJ will release a more in-depth analysis of stop-and-frisk trends.
