After Eric Garner died in an officer’s chokehold on Staten Island in 2014, questions were raised about who holds the police accountable.
Now a nonprofit group is making public thousands of lawsuits by people who say they are victims of police misconduct in New York City.
The group, the Legal Aid Society, unveiled an online database yesterday called CAPstat. But police unions in New York warn that the information includes false allegations.
Here’s what you need to know about it:
What does the database include?
To date, the database contains information about 2,339 lawsuits accusing 3,897 officers of violating the federal civil rights of various plaintiffs.
The suits were filed between January 2015 and mid-2018.
The website also has disciplinary records for about 1,800 officers accused of misconduct between 2011 and 2015.
Why is the database useful?
You can look up who has been sued, and why.
It’s not just about finding “a bad officer,” but identifying systemic problems, said Cynthia Conti-Cook, a staff attorney at the Legal Aid Society.
In other words, she said, if a pattern was widespread enough, the people held responsible might not just be officers or commanders, but the head of a department — or the mayor.
Is there a downside to making information public?
The Police Department and the police unions said some of the lawsuits were frivolous, but could be used to undermine officers’ credibility.
“This database is clearly to help guilty criminals beat the charges against them,” Patrick Lynch, president of the Patrolmen’s Benevolent Association, said in an email.
What does the data show?
Here is information from the CAPstat database. An updated search of court records may yield different results.
• Out of 307 lawsuits filed in which the plaintiff was identified as black, 96 were settled for a total of .6 million.
• Out of 55 lawsuits filed in which the plaintiff was identified as Latino, 16 were settled for a total of .2 million.
• Out of 238 lawsuits filed in which the plaintiff was identified as female, 74 were settled for a total of .2 million.
• 72 lawsuits were filed citing “retaliation for recording”; 27 were settled for a total of 1,256.
• 48 lawsuits were filed citing the use of a “chokehold”; 21 were settled for a total of 6,001.
• 292 lawsuits were filed citing “tight handcuffs”; 106 were settled for a total of .4 million.
• The 75th precinct, which includes Brooklyn’s East New York neighborhood, was involved in the most lawsuits of any precinct: 91. The settlements totaled more than .1 million.From The Times

Events are subject to change, so double-check before heading out. For more events, see the going-out guides from The Times’s culture pages.And finally: Beer!
“Beer is for everybody,” said Anne Becerra, a beer expert and beverage director at Treadwell Park in Manhattan.
She was explaining the trends in the craft breweries while I listened silently. Perhaps, too silently.
“I bet you I can find you a beer that you are obsessed with,” she told me. It would take a few minutes worth of questioning, “kind of like a psychologist.”
I politely declined the questioning, but appreciated the offer.
Ms. Becerra will have other opportunities to preach the gospel of her favorite beverage.
Today at 4, she will help host the New York City round of the statewide Best Brews of New York competition at Brookfield Place.
Five local craft breweries will offer their best beverages. The public will vote, and it will all be “guided” by Ms. Becerra, as the organizers put it.
Competing are the Bronx Brewery (the Bronx), Coney Island Brewing Company (Brooklyn), Harlem Brewing Company (Manhattan), Mikkeller (Queens) and Sixpoint Brewery (Brooklyn).
The winner will return to Brookfield Place next week to face off against breweries that won competitions upstate and on Long Island.
Upstate New York will be represented by Empire Brewing Company of Syracuse, and Long Island by Barrier Brewing Company of Oceanside.
Proceeds from the beers sold will be donated to Habitat for Humanity. Last year, Best Brews raised more than ,000 for New Yorkers for Parks, a nonprofit organization.
Ms. Becerra said the beer world has, at times, overlooked a huge swath of its audience. “If you look at all the advertisements for beer, who major breweries are speaking to, a majority of the time it’s been men,” she said.
“But I think that’s changing a lot with craft breweries that are far more flavor-based.”
It’s Thursday — taste something new.Metropolitan Diary: Red High Heels
A lithe young man in tight jeans got on the A train. He was carrying a boom box and a bag.
He pulled out a pair of sparkling red high heels, put them on and proceeded to fly around the car, twirling on the vertical poles and hanging from the horizontal ones.
He pulled a woman much younger than me into a sensuous dance. As I moved to the beat, I wondered whether she had been waiting there to accompany him.
After she sat down, he turned toward me and held out his hand. We danced together for a few minutes in a kind of semi-ballroom style.
“Take a bow,” he whispered, bending me backward as though I were Ginger Rogers.
I sat back down. What a ride.
