THE BRONX - New Yorkers think keeping crime rates down is more important than reforming the NYPD's stop-and-frisk policy, according to one new poll.

A Quinnipiac University poll found 62 percent of people questioned were more concerned with keeping crime down than the controversial police practice.

However, voters said the next mayor could reform stop-and-frisk without seeing a spike in crime.

Earlier this year, a federal judge ruled the policy was unconstitutional, claiming it unfairly singled out minorities.
