Americans in New Jersey’s largest city were subjected to surveillance as part of the New York Police Department’s effort to build databases of where Muslims work, shop and pray.

The surveillance program by the NYPD Intelligence Division had come under fire by community activists who accused the department of abusing civil rights. (AP Photo/Charles Dharapak, File)
