Cameron Rowland, “Reasonable Suspicion”, 2020, Form DCJS 3205. The NYPD incident report records the race of both the victim and suspect, but it only records the skin tone of the suspect. The suspect description functions to create a wanted profile that police seek to match. Matching a description in the vicinity of a reported crime is often considered enough to meet the standard for reasonable suspicion. According to the NYPD COMPSTAT report, in 2019 Black people constituted 52.35% of misdemeanor and felony suspects and 60.3% of Stop, Question, and Frisk subjects. In 2019 Black people constituted 24.3% of the city’s population.
