NYPD releases 2011 stop-frisk figures, nearly 90 percent stopped were black or Hispanic

The NYPD has released a report that breaks down its controversial stop and frisk policy by precinct and race.

The 2011 figures show nearly 90 percent of those stopped for "reasonable suspicion" were black or Hispanic. Together, the two groups comprise less than 53 percent of the city's population.

Brooklyn's 75th precinct, covering East New York and Cypress Hills, had the most stops. Ninety-seven percent of the more than 31,000 people stopped were black or Hispanic.

The figures show a total of 685,724 people were detained in 2011.

The New York Civil Liberties Union fought for the release of the figures last year.

NYPD spokesman Paul Browne tells the Daily News charges of racial profiling were unfair. He says there are more stops in some precincts because they have more crime.
