Study: More Stops By Police Correlates To Less Favorable View

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) -- A NYPD-commissioned study suggests the more times a person is stopped by a police officer, the less favorable their view of police becomes.

According to the Wall Street Journal, the survey of 17,340 residents found people who were stopped once were 25 percent less likely to say NYPD was doing a good job.

For people stopped more than once, job approval dropped by 58 percent.

The study's findings show the impact street stops have on police-community relations.

The survey was paid for by the nonprofit New York City Police Foundation and was conducted by Haystaq DNA.
