Description

In 2001, the Saint Paul Police Department began collecting data on traffic stops as part of an agreement with the Saint Paul Chapter of the NAACP. Over the past 16 years, the department has used a data collection system to gather information on over 700,000 traffic stops. This data presents the number of stops and searches of individuals and their vehicles including demographic information. Traffic stop data will be updated and presented on an annual basis.
• Total number of traffic stops
• Traffic stops by race and gender
• Driver searches by race and gender
• Vehicle searches by race and gender
• Reason for stop (New in 2017)
The maps and graphs being shared on this site are the Police Department’s best effort to show and understand the data that has been collected. While reviewing the information, please note:
• Graphs and charts are created using raw data
• Data reflects traffic stops originating in the City of St. Paul
• Race is based on officers’ perceptions
• Fields indicating “No Data” may be due to:
- Age data is only collected when a citation is issued
- Reason for stop data was not collected before 2017
- Technology changes over time
- Technical errors
- Lack of available information
To better understand how the data reflect officers’ day-to-day activities, please click on the maps below. It may be helpful to see where most of the calls for service originate, where traffic crashes occur and in which grids stops are made.
