NEW YORK - A judge has ordered the more than 800 instances where police shot at civilians must now be on public record.

The judge ordered the information be released after the New York Civil Liberties Union began asking for racial data. The order allows for racial data to be revealed but does not allow other identifying information.

The New York City Police Department must release names of officers involved in police shootings of civilians. The order says two types of reports must be released - an initial report filed 24 hours after an inicident and a more detailed report completed 90 days after the shooting.

The shootings reports date back to 1997.
