What is Stop and Frisk? Stop and Frisk is a policy of the NYPD to stop and search anyone on the street without warrant. 85% of those stopped are Black or Latino, affecting thousands of people every day in New York City. This breaks apart communities of color targeting populations for mass incarceration. These practices lead to widespread civil and human rights abuses, sexual harassment, humiliation, violence and death at the hands of the police.
