Blacks and Latinos made up 87% of the nearly 686,000 stop-and-frisks in New York City in 2011. According to the report, blacks made up 53% of the stops, Latinos at 34%, and whites about 9%.

“The nearly 686,000 stops conducted in 2011 equated to less than one stop per police officer per week among the 19,600 officers on patrol during the period,” Deputy Commissioner for Public Information Paul Browne said in an email. Brooklyn’s 75th Precinct, which covers East New York, Cypress Hills, Starrett City and City Line, saw the most stops, with 31,100—97% of them involved blacks and Hispanics. Source
