Stop Data Summary: January 1-June 30, 2020


Monday, February 22, 2021

In July 2019, to enhance data collection as part of the NEAR Act, authored by Councilmember Kenyan McDuffie, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) launched changes to police processes and data systems to allow the collection of more data in discrete fields and enable greater data analysis of police stops. The result of these changes is comprehensive data on all MPD stops. MPD has published two reports based on the data collected—the previous report is based on nearly 24 weeks of data (July 22 through December 31, 2019), and contains more information, including types of stops, searches or pat downs, locations, reasons, and demographics. The comprehensive data set is also available to the public on the MPD open data page. This brief summary is a 6-month update based on data from January through June, 2020, which is also now available on the same webpage. Data for July - December 2020 will be available in March 2021, to be followed by a report in April 2021.
