Law enforcement agencies in hundreds of jurisdictions around the country have begun to collect information about the stops and searches they conduct. The pages on this website contain records of those jurisdictions who are collecting data based on legislation, executive directives, voluntary efforts, policy decisions, and court settlements or consent decrees. Each record contains the jurisdiction's reason for collection, what data fields they included in collection, and related documents and materials about the collection process. The documents and materials include links to legislation, policies, reports analyzing the data, materials related to training programs or technology used as part of the data collection system, and articles explaining how data collection has affected the departments and the communities.
