Reports of police misconduct, including those related to stop and frisk, are on the decline.

The Civilian Complaint Review Board says they fell six percent between 2012 and 2013.

While the number of documented street encounters by the NYPD dropped 64 percent, the number of complaints related to stop and frisk fell nine percent.

The CCRB acknowledges however, that some of the decrease may be related to a two month period last year when their toll free number was down due to Hurricane Sandy.

But they say reports have been declining consistently for the last five years. ClientIP:,, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
