CCSU Releases Report on Police Racial Profiling in Connecticut

Central Connecticut State University has released a report on police racial profiling during traffic stops and leaders from the school's Institute for Municipal and Regional Policy are presenting their findings in Hartford on Tuesday.

According to the report, an analysis of the state's traffic stop data indicates that some progress has been made in terms of when police make the decision to stop a minority driver.

However, it found that minorities are being treated differently after a traffic stop. Those differences could be in if they get a warning, ticket or searched.

They also concluded that the bar to search a minority was much lower than a white driver.

CCSU's Institute for Municipal and Regional Policy analyzed traffic stops in 2017 to come to the conclusions.

Institute leaders will present their findings at the Legislative Office Building in Hartford at 10 a.m.
