NYPD expanding gang-busting tactic that was born in the Bronx
The NYPD is expanding a gang-busting tactic that started in the Bronx.
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.
