NEW YORK — The NYPD is on course to stop and frisk a record number of people this year - more than 580,000 — after a year in which accusations of racial profiling led to a noticeable drop in the practice.
The City Council released the latest numbers yesterday for the first quarter of 2008. According to the statistics, 145,098 people were stopped in the first three months of this year, compared with 109,855 for the last quarter of 2007.
