NYPD Settles Stop-and-Frisk Database Lawsuit
August 07, 2013
The NYPD has agreed to stop keeping the names and addresses of people who've been targets of stop-and-frisks, a civil rights group announced Wednesday.
In a settlement with the New York Civil Liberties Union, the NYPD has agreed to remove all names and addresses from its stop and frisk database within the next 90 days.
The NYPD was forced to remove the names and addresses of people who were stopped but not given a summons or arrested back in 2010, thanks to a change in state law. The NYCLU sued the department that same year, seeking to also excise the names and addresses of people just given a summons or who were arrested but later cleared of criminal wrongdoing.

This is so easy to fix. Rename the file as "FI" Field Interrorgation cards and no more problem. Every police department in the USA has an FI file some just call it a master name index. They cover mostly non-arrest situations which that information might be needed in the future to solve crime by establishing that person's location and who they were with. Of course it can just as easily it exonerate a suspect too. An FI file does not infer that a crime was committed its just a record of a persons location for future reference.
