The New York City Police Department is on pace to stopping-and-frisking a record number of New Yorkers this year.
According to a New York Civil Liberties Union analysis of new police data, during the first nine months of 2011, the NYPD made more than 500,000 street stops.
The group says officers are on track to conduct just more than 675,000 stops, which is a nearly 13 percent increase over last year.
The NYCLU claims most of these interrogations involved blacks or Latinos, and nearly 90 percent of the stops did not result in an arrest or ticket.
The group also says officers have now stopped more than four million New Yorkers since 2004, when record keeping began.
Low-income neighborhoods like Washington Heights, Central Brooklyn and Far Rockaway have the most encounters.
Police officials say the policy has reduced violent crime in the city.
