Macy's has agreed to pay $650,000 to settle allegations of racial profiling at its flagship store in Herald Square.

Under the agreement with State Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, the company will allow police officers easier access to security footage, further train employees and keep better records of detentions.

Macy's will also adopt new policies to prevent racial profiling and report for three years on compliance.

The settlement is in response to more than a dozen recent complaints of profiling and false detentions of shoppers.

Store officials say the company strictly prohibits discrimination.

Last week, Barney's came to a similar multi-million dollar settlement over racial profiling at their Manhattan location.
