Description

Throughout Illinois, there is a dramatic racial disparity in police use of so-called “consent searches” and dog sniff searches during routine traffic stops. This is shown by a decade of government data about consent searches collected and published under the Illinois Traffic Stop Statistical Study Act of 2003 (“Study Act”), and the first two years of such data regarding dog sniff searches.
