Law enforcement agencies must file racial profiling forms
Section 590.650 of Missouri Revised Statutes specifies that every time a peace officer stops a driver for violating a motor vehicle statute or ordinance, that officer must report certain driver information, including the driver's race, to his or her department. The agency then must compile the information from every traffic stop into an annual report to the Attorney General. The 2007 annual report will be due March 1, 2008.
The Attorney General requests that all law enforcement agencies electronically file their annual reports. A letter providing agencies with a password to complete the submission was sent to all agencies in mid-December. If your agency still needs a password, please e-mail or call Carol Berendzen at 573-751-8824.
Once you go online and enter your password, you will need to complete the mandatory annual report form and six vehicle stops by race forms.
Information gathered on the non-mandatory vehicle stop information form corresponds directly to what is required on the annual report form and should help your agency in completing the annual report form. The vehicle stop form can be filled out by an officer in about 15-20 seconds.
