A total of 8,882 claims were filed against the NYPD in fiscal 2011, 772 more than 2010, says Comptroller John Liu.

The city also settled $185.6 million of personal injury and other tort claims that involved the NYPD, a 35 percent increase from fiscal 2010, the report said.

The city should “explore a unified method to track individual officers named in claim suits and the payouts,” Liu’s report said.
