Attorney General Koster releases 13th annual report on vehicle stops

May 31,2013

 

Jefferson City, Mo. – Attorney  General Chris Koster today released the 13th Annual Report on Vehicle  Stops. The 2012 report contains analysis on more than 1.6 million stops  by 616 law enforcement agencies, including racial and ethnic information about  drivers who were stopped. 

Koster said Missourians can visit his website to  compare the 2012 report to vehicle stops data going back to 2000, when data  collection was first required by Missouri law.

"One of the best uses of these reports is as a springboard for dialogue and  communication between law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve,"  Koster said. "It is vital that Missouri law enforcement agencies continue  to review the rates of stops and searches and to continue their outreach efforts."

The Attorney General reiterated that the disparity index for any community is  not conclusive evidence of racial profiling.

The "disparity indexes" compare the proportion of stops for drivers of a  particular race or ethnicity to the proportion of state or local population of  that racial or ethnic group. A value of "1" represents no disparity; values  over "1" indicate over-representation, while values under "1" indicate  under-representation. 

Koster said in 2012 the statewide African-American disparity index was 1.57,  down from the 2011 rate of 1.63. This represents the third time in  13 years that the disparity index for African-American drivers has  decreased.  

The report shows the rate (disparity index) at which Hispanics were stopped  decreased in 2012 to .60, compared to .65 in 2011, a rate lower than that of  white drivers. However, search rates (the rates at which drivers of a  given race are searched subsequent to a traffic stop) for both Hispanic and African-American  drivers continue to be higher than for white drivers. Hispanic drivers  were 1.92 times more likely than white drivers to be searched. African-American drivers were 1.83 times more likely to be searched when  stopped than white drivers.  

Despite the elevated search rates, Hispanics were less likely than white  drivers to be found with contraband subsequent to being searched. While  the “contraband hit rate” for white drivers was 25.5, the rate of Hispanics  searched and found to have contraband was 16.9. The "contraband hit  rate" for African-American drivers was 18.8.

Koster thanked and commended law enforcement agencies for their willingness to  compile information for the report. He noted that 96 percent of agencies  submitted information.  Twenty-three agencies did not respond in 2012, a  decrease from the 25 departments that failed to report in 2011. The  Attorney General's office has submitted the names of those agencies that did  not respond to the Governor, as required by law.

Koster noted that the report contains information on vehicle stops from  individual law enforcement agencies, so each community can examine its own data  and situation. For example, it is helpful to compare departments of a  similar size or from similar geographic areas. Additionally, factors such  as crime patterns or the existence of an interstate highway in a given region  may affect data samples. Koster noted that general statewide trends do  not necessarily reflect trends for individual departments, which should be  considered on an individual basis.

The full report plus data for individual law enforcement agencies can be found  online.

First, as an American consumer of engery, let me just say, "Oink!"This would be a rather interesting thesis topic (I wonder if some enterprising college student has already done this). If we can adjust for variables such as housing size, relative temperatures, per capita income, engery-related tax rates and so on, we might be able to determine what the Europeans are doing "right" that Americans might want to copy.If it all comes down to things like milder temperatures (thank you, Gulf Stream!) or smaller houses, then it would be perfectly understandable that Europeans use less engery to heat their homes, but I think it would be interesting to see what other factors might be at play. How about such things as political outlook concerning engery taxes, or willingness to live at a "lower" standard of living? Is the amount of engery that people use determined solely by price? Or, do people who live in more socialist countries have a different outlook than people who live in more capitalist countries?Stuart, do you think it is even feasible to try to figure out something like this?

Hi Tom,Great question. It would help to know which theme you psrchaued and of course what customizations you are looking to make. In addition to this comment I'm sending you an e-mail.In order to fully answer your question we'll need to ask each other some questions.WordPress Themes can be endlessly modified, so your question is not specific enough. As for pricing, I prefer not to list my hourly rate on the site, but will share it with you when we converse via e-mail or phone. The pricing for modifications will depend on whether you want me to do the work for you or if you would like me to teach you how to perform the changes yourself.Thank you for the inquiry. http://nomtpmzdp.com [url=http://latisjqcbp.com]latisjqcbp[/url] [link=http://kkjhywtzam.com]kkjhywtzam[/link]

Dear Mr. Tan,While LTA is engaging coltsnuant to carry out survey on standard of taxi service, it is also timely for Government to contact survey on Public Service. The PS21 Office (PSO) was set up under the Public Service Division (PSD) of the Prime Minister's Office (PMO) to nurture a culture of change in the Public Service. There is still little information published on the standard of LTA, HDB, EDB, MOE, NEA, PSB, etc.
