Report on the

YPD's Activity

In collaboration with BSDY

and COGs with contributions

from EJC, RCCS, and BLSA,

YUPP's 45-page report on the Yale Police Department. 

analyzes data from YPD's own crime logs, call logs and

the FBI's crime reporting program.

The report details the YPD's focus on property and assets, the departments 

 inefficiency even by their own standards, and indicates their irrelevance to the safety of the Yale and New Haven community. 

Tool-Kits

Throughout YUPP's history of advocacy and direct service, we have produced multiple informational and advocacy tool kits. We encourage anyone, not just our members, to utalize these documents.
