Jeanmarie Evelly’s summer 2012 investigation of the impact of stop and frisk on Sector E of Brooklyn’s 75th Precinct—the sector with the most stops in the precinct with the most such encounters—is a finalist for an award from the National Association of Black Journalists.
With photographer Pearl Gabel, Evelly documented the multifaceted effects of the NYPD strategy and the nuanced opinions over its use.
City Limits used an NYPD database to map stops within Sector E and create a timeline of one day of police-civilian encounters, as well as develop detailed statistics about those encounters. The Investigative Fund at the Nation Institute supported the work.
The series is also a finalist for a Media for a Just Society Award from the National Council on Crime and Delinquency.
