Graph showing rate of stop and frisk

Data Source: New York Police Department data as reported by the New York Civil Liberties Union at www.nyclu.org/content/stop-and-frisk-data. (Graph: Bernadette Rabuy, 2016)

This graph originally appeared in Stop and frisk dropping but still ineffective.

Even as the number of stop and frisks in New York has decreased significantly, the percentage of stops that resulted in further action has remained steady.
