NEW YORK CITY, NY - A review by New York City's new police inspector general of suspected police chokeholds has found gaps in discipline and raises questions about officer training.

The report by the inspector general's office was being released Monday.

The office studied 10 random cases of suspected chokeholds investigated by the police watchdog agency, the Civilian Complaint Review Board. The report found there were inconsistent approaches by the review board and the New York Police Department for determining when officers should be held accountable for such accusations.

It was the first report issued by the inspector general's office, which was created in the wake of public outcry over the NYPD's stop-and-frisk tactic. That tactic has been largely curbed since Police Commissioner William Bratton took over a year ago.
