NYPD Crimefighting database to be deleted

July 16, 2010

An NYPD database known as the “250 database” would be deleted under a state bill scheduled to be signed today by the Governor of New York State.

The database contains the names and associated personal information for 2.9 million people since 2004 who were stopped and frisked, but never arrested.

In 2009 alone more than 500,000 people were stopped and frisked, but only 12% were arrested or issued summons, with 88% released.

    I have since found a few URLs. Here is one:
