NEW YORK (AP) - A study commissioned by the New York Police Department has found the more times a person is stopped by an officer, the less favorably they view police.

The Wall Street Journal reports (https://on.wsj.com/1sDbdWH ) the survey of 17,340 residents found people who were stopped once were 25 percent less likely to say the New York Police Department was doing a good job. For people stopped more than once, job approval dropped by 58 percent.

The findings show the impact street stops have on police-community relations. The Journal reports a division between whites and other races on whether police conduct is appropriate during stops.

The survey was paid for by the nonprofit New York City Police Foundation. It was conducted by Haystaq DNA and has a 0.74 percentage point margin of error.
