THE BRONX - An NYPD official testified Monday that he did not tell a police officer in the Bronx to stop only blacks and Hispanics, and that he didn't set stop-and-frisk quotas.

Deputy Inspector Christopher McCormack has been accused of punishing officer Pedro Serrano for not making enough arrests. He is the latest official to take the stand in the ongoing battle over the controversial police policy.

The lawsuit against stop-and-frisk claims that it violates people's right, and accuses officers of making race-based stops. Supporters argue that it has helped keep murder rates at a record low citywide.
