This project examines whether racial or ethnic disparities exist in traffic enforcement practices.

Project Summary:

This project examines traffic stops from all law enforcement agencies in Rhode Island.

IRJ researchers also work with law enforcement agencies to help institutionalize these types of analyses into the normal practices of each agency.
