Documents relating to the use of racial profiling in policing
The Office of Police Oversight examines Austin Police Department data to examine how various racial/ethnic groups in Austin experience APD. For example, in January 2020, the Office of Police Oversight, Equity Office, and Office of Innovation released the inaugural Joint Report: Analysis of APD Racial Profiling Data (Joint Report). The Joint Report analyzed racial disparity in Austin Police Department motor vehicle stop data from 2015-2018. Additionally, the report provided recommendations to address the disparities indicated by the analysis. Reports, memos, and responses regarding racial profiling are made public by the Office of Police Oversight.
