VEHICLE STOPS REPORT

2016 Annual Report | 2016 Executive SummaryAdvanced SearchRules & Regulations

Concerns by the citizens of Missouri and the Missouri legislature regarding allegations of racial profiling by law enforcement prompted the passage in 2000 of Section 590.650, RSMo. That statute requires that all peace officers report specific information—including a driver’s race—for each vehicle stop made in the State. Law-enforcement agencies must provide the data to the Attorney General by March 1, and the Attorney General is required to compile the data and report to the Governor no later than June 1 of each year. The Governor may withhold state funds for any agency that does not comply with these requirements.

The statewide vehicle-stop data contained in this Report have been analyzed by Dr. Scott H. Decker, professor and director of the School of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Arizona State University; Dr. Richard Rosenfeld, professor in the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of Missouri-St. Louis; and Dr. Jeffrey Rojek, assistant professor in the Department of Criminology and Criminal Justice at the University of South Carolina.
