The Institute for Municipal and Regional Policy at Central CT State University (IMRP), in consultation with the Office of Policy and Management (OPM), has established a Racial Profiling Prohibition Advisory Board to help oversee the design, evaluation, and management of the racial profiling study mandated by P.A. 12-74 “An Act Concerning Traffic Stop Information.” The IMRP will work with the Advisory Board and all appropriate parties to enhance the collection and analysis of traffic stop data in Connecticut. This website will be used to provide public information about the on-going work of the advisory board.
P.A. 12-74 requires (1) the Office of Policy and Management in consultation with the Racial Profiling Advisory Board, within available resources, to develop and implement methods for collecting traffic stop information, (2) police officers to record traffic stop information using the new method and any forms developed and implemented as part of it and give a copy to each motor vehicle operator stopped, starting July 1, 2013 and (3) police departments retain and submit data annually to OPM for analysis.
