Stanford: New database allows Stanford researchers to find disparities in officers’ treatment of minority motorists

Stanford: New database allows Stanford researchers to find disparities in officers’ treatment of minority motorists. “…These findings are based on a nationwide database – which the Stanford researchers created – of state patrol stops. The database contains key details from millions of records collected from 2011 to 2015 and is part of an effort to statistically analyze police practices. Along with the findings they are sharing today, the researchers are releasing their entire dataset, complete with online tutorials, so that policy makers, journalists and citizens can do their own analyses through this new Stanford Open Policing Project.”
