Description

This report, based on information available in the Kentucky Vehicle Stops Database for 2001, is a summary of some limited and exploratory findings concerning the nature of vehicle stops conducted by the agencies participating in this project. It is not meant to be information from which a conclusion can be drawn concerning the presence or absence of biased-policing and/or racial profiling within an agency or unit within an agency. The data is too limited and is only baseline information. The methodological issues related to determinations of the presence or absence of biased-policing and/or racial profiling are extremely complex and no set of data has yet been developed that can conclusively determine the presence or absence of these types of inappropriate policing decisions and actions.
