BROOKLYN - The NYPD's newest gang-busting tactic is coming to Brooklyn.

Police are putting information on suspects into a centralized computer database available to the entire department. The information includes the suspect's personal data, and the location of and reason for the police stop.

According to police, this data can help solve crimes because detectives investigating a crime in one area can search for suspects who may have been questioned outside of their precinct.
