Bronx group aims to improve NYPD community relations
The Morris Justice Project wants to strengthen the relationship between police and the community.
The group has been around for four years, documenting the consequences of "broken windows" policing, including the NYPD's controversial use of stop and frisk.
"We tried to start breaking down to make a survey to find out what was going on in the neighborhood, how many people were going through what we were going through," said member Jacqueline Yates.
The group found that 75 percent of Bronx residents surveyed in 2011 said that they were stopped by police at some point in their lifetime.
