Stop Data

"Stop Data" is the information gathered when police officers make discretionary stops.

Stop Data reports provide the results from data collection made for discretionary stops. The stop data policy and data collection program has been implemented with the intention of creating an internal culture of accountability and ensuring that our policing practices are constitutional. Providing the Oakland community with public safety services in a fair and equitable manner remains our priority. We understand the importance of our responsibility to implement strategies that effectively reduce crime and protect the civil liberties of everyone.
