Washington, Feb. 5 (ANI): The New York Police Department has released a report on its controversial stop-and-frisk procedure that gives details on by precincts, and by race, on those who've been targeted.

The figures from 2011 show that more than 31,000 people were stopped and frisked, and 97 percent of them were either black or Hispanic.

Blacks and Hispanics together make up less than 53 percent of the city's population.

A total of 685,724 people, 8.6 percent of the city's population, were detained by cops for "reasonable suspicion."

The areas which were the most frisked were Brooklyn's 75th, which included East New York and Cypress Hills.

According to the New York Daily News, Brooklyn's 73rd Precinct, covering Brownsville, was the next highest, with 25,167 stops, in which 98 percent stopped were minorities.

The 115th Precinct, which includes East Elmhurst, Corona and Jackson Heights in Queens, ranked third, with 18,156 stops.

The figures revealed that nearly 93 percent of those involved minorities.

The 40th Precinct in The Bronx, which covers Mott Haven and Melrose, racked up the next highest number, 17,690, with 98.5 percent involving minorities.

And at No. 5 was the 90th Precinct in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, where there were 17,566 stops, with 88.6 percent involving minorities.

After knowing the figures, the New York Civil Liberties Union said that they showed a pattern of racial profiling, a charge that the NYPD has denied.

The Police Department said it had no comment on why it was releasing the figures now, the report added. (ANI)
