DC police chief talks homicides, stop-and-frisk

Posted: Updated:
WASHINGTON, DC - District of Columbia Police Chief Cathy Lanier says New York City's stop-and-frisk policy probably helped reduce crime but became a less acceptable police tactic as communities there became safer.
Lanier spoke Friday at an American Bar Association conference, where she discussed tactics to reduce homicides.
A federal appeals court on Thursday blocked a judge's ruling that found that stop-and-frisk discriminated against minorities.
In response to a question, Lanier said the policy may have run into problems by not requiring officers to provide detailed explanations for why individuals were stopped and frisked.
