Abstract

Bias‐based policing is an issue that police departments all over the country are addressing. While police engage the public in many ways, traffic stops are possibly the most common way. This research project sought to broaden the approach to assessing bias‐based policing beyond traffic stop data by surveying the officers and the citizens to compare the views of both of these groups. Our research found interesting comparisons that we discuss in this paper. These issues between the two groups are important to resolving the issues associated with bias‐based policing.
