BROOKLYN - Assemblyman Hakeem Jefferies hopes to introduce a bill this week that will amend the 'Stop and Frisk' bill.
Jefferies says nearly nine out of 10 of people stopped and questioned by police last year were not arrested or issued a summons. He says more than 80 percent were black or Latino.
The NYPD keeps the information in an electronic database even though they are innocent.
Jefferies will introduce a bill that mandates that all information should be destroyed and not kept by the NYPD if the individual is free of wrongdoing.
The NYPD says it uses the database as a tool to investigate crime. It says almost 2,000 weapons were recovered as a results of the stops throughout this year. One-hundred-eighty-six of them were guns, including two machine guns and 11 assault rifles.
