Develop and Implement Pedestrian Stop Monitoring and Accountability Strategies
Strategies to monitor the racial and ethnic impact of pedestrian stops must be developed and implemented to prevent disparate outcomes. The behavior and actions of officers during pedestrian stops should be routinely observed and audited, and officers should periodically review body-worn camera footage and the bases and outcomes of the stops to ensure that their actions follow federal, state, and local laws; agency policies; and the tenets of procedural justice. An evaluation of pedestrian stop activity in the aggregate and over time should be performed to ensure there is no racial and ethnic disproportionality, paying particular attention to the larger effects of pedestrian stops on the community. Any evidence of disparity should be addressed.
