Abstract

Department

Description

In 1999, North Carolina became the first state in the country to mandate the collection of data whenever a police officer stops a motorist. Since January 1, 2000, the State Highway Patrol has been collecting these data, and since January 1, 2002, all sizable police departments in the state have done so. The data are made publicly available by the NC Department of Justice through a web site listed below. However, the state has never issued any reports based on analyses of the data collected.
