THE BRONX - The South Bronx led the borough with the most stop-and-frisk encounters in 2011, according to a new NYPD report.

The latest data shows that the 40th Precinct had the most stops with about 18,000. The majority of those frisks involved blacks or Hispanics, but the report notes that the majority of known criminals in the area are black or Hispanic.

There were nearly 700,000 stops for that year, which amounts to fewer than one a week by each police officer in the force.
