City council members approved an order Wednesday that was signed by city Police Director Samuel DeMaio. It calls for the department to release the race, gender, age and level of English proficiency of the person stopped. Police must also record whether any force was used and if contraband was discovered or seized.

Officers must also provide a legal justification for a frisk.

The department will also release monthly internal affairs data, including the number of citizen and departmental complaints received. Monthly field inquiry and use of force reports will also be in the public domain.

The New Jersey Civil Liberties Union hails the report as one of the most comprehensive stop-and-frisk policies in the nation.
