An NYPD report on 2011 stop-and-frisks shows no racial profiling, a spokesman for the agency told the New York Daily News.

The report, the first official release of data from the NYPD's stop-and-frisk program, lists stops by precinct. The tactic was used most in Brooklyn and Queens, where nearly all suspects who were stopped were black or Latino.

Brooklyn’s 75th, which includes East New York and Cypress Hills, had the most stops. More than 31,000 people were stopped, and 97 percent of them were either black or Hispanic, reports the New York Post.

Other precincts rounding out the top five were the 73rd Precinct, covering Brownsville in Brooklyn; the 115th Precinct, which includes East Elmhurst, Corona and Jackson Heights in Queens; the 40th Precinct in The Bronx, which covers Mott Haven and Melrose; and the 90th Precinct in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.
