THE BRONX - The New York Civil Liberties Union (NYCLU) has launched an Android app to monitor the NYPD's stop-and-frisk policy.

The program will allow users to document encounters with police and alert community members nearby when a street stop is in progress.

According to the NYCLU, police have conducted 600 percent more stop-and-frisk searches since Mayor Michael Bloomberg took office.

The app is available in both English and Spanish.
