Reports on track for ambitious Traffic Stop Race Data Collection Project

Just over a year into the ambitious Traffic Stop Race Data Collection Project patrol officers have recorded and tracked more than 60-thousand stops.

At each roadside stop the officers enter the circumstances of the stop, their perception of the race of the driver and when they noticed the driver's race.

At Monday's Police Services Board Meeting the leader of the project will tell the board the project is on track and working well. The stops will continue to be tracked until June 2015.

Ottawa Police are working with researchers from York University to make sure the data is complete and useful.

The project was ordered as part of a settlement following a complaint about the police service to the Ontario Human Rights Tribunal.
