New numbers released Monday revealed that 4,690 arrests had been made during the week ending Jan. 11, compared to 2,401 between Dec. 29 and Jan. 4, the New York Times reported.

Bratton told police commanders and union leaders that he expected an end to the slowdown, which took place following the shooting of two officers in apparent retaliation for the deaths of Eric Garner and Michael Brown
