Race and Policing

A report of the Bureau of Justice Statistics on interactions between police and the public found that black residents were more likely to be stopped by police than white or Hispanic residents (both in traffic stops and street stops); black and Hispanic residents were more likely to have multiple contacts with police than white residents; and when police initiated an interaction, they were twice as likely to threaten or use force against Black and Hispanic residents than white residents.
