[ARCHIVED] Police Release Traffic Stop Data

Squad Lights

In 2017, the Roseville Police Department began collecting driver information for all traffic stops. That data was released by the department on Thursday, February 2 and is now available to the public.

The collection effort is part of an ongoing, voluntary countywide initiative to increase transparency and provide residents with more context about traffic stops. It includes recording the perceived race and gender of the driver, whether the driver was searched, whether the vehicle was searched, the reason for the stop, and whether or not the driver received a warning or a citation.

According to the data, Roseville Police made 2,459 stops in 2017, 82 percent of which were for moving violations. The additional stops were for vehicle violations (11 percent) and investigative stops (6 percent) for things like warrants, attempts to locate a vehicle, or a vehicle matching a suspect description.

The goal of collecting and publicizing the data is to provide residents with a better understanding of how traffic laws are enforced in Roseville. On March 14, Police Chief Rick Mathwig and Lieutenant Erika Scheider will review and discuss the data at a public forum, which will include an opportunity for residents to ask questions and provide the department with feedback.

To review the data from Roseville Police Department 2017 traffic stops as well the corresponding charts and graphs, visit www.cityofroseville.com/trafficstops.
