  • Study finds racial disparities in Vermont State Police traffic stops

    Vermont Public Radio - 05/25/2016

    Associate Director Jack McDevitt, who presented the data, said unlike Vermont State Police, most police agencies in the country don’t collect traffic stop data to help them determine the extent of racial bias.

    “There’s no glaring areas,” McDevitt said of the information, which he presented to a group that included state police commanders and members of the state police Fair and Impartial Policing Committee.

    “But there are areas where there are disparities, and it’s the place where you want to say, ‘Is there something more here?’” he added.
