Stop-and-Frisk (NY)

The Stop-question-and-frisk program, or stop-and-frisk, in New York City, was a program of the New York Police Department in which police officers stopped and questioned hundreds of thousands of pedestrians, frisking them for weapons and other contraband. (This kind of stop is referred to as a Terry stop, because the Supreme Court said such stops are constitutional, if supported by reasonable suspicion, in Terry v. Ohio.) The program, and related search programs, were the subject of sustained litigation; the relevant cases are collected here.
The below cases represent a special subset of the full Clearinghouse collection.
