In July 2019, the Metropolitan Police Department (MPD) and the Department of Motor Vehicles launched new data systems and related policy and training to allow the collection of more data in discrete fields and enable greater data analysis of police stops. Transparency around this information is critically important to public trust. MPD is committed to ensuring that each police stop meets its high standards for fair and constitutional policing and demonstrates respect for the individual stopped.
