Collect and Disseminate Traffic Stop Data at the Agency and State Levels and Disseminate to the Public

Detailed data on officer traffic stops should be collected at the agency and state levels and submitted to a centralized state repository. These data should include the time, date, and precise location of the stop, the reason for the stop, and the outcomes, including searches and searches incidental to arrest, contraband recovery, arrests and charges, and the demographic details of those involved.​ States should promote accountability and transparency by releasing such data to the public.
