Michigan State Police posts traffic stop data, says rise in stops involving Black drivers ’merits review’
DETROIT – Michigan State Police has launched a new site where they are publishing data on traffic stops and other arrests broken down by county, race and other factors. Michigan State Police (MSP) Director Col. Joe Gasper today announced the creation of a new Transparency and Accountability webpage that provides the public with easy access to information about the administration and operation of the MSP. Information includes department policies, strategic plan, training requirements, recruiting and staffing numbers and use of force and traffic stop data, among other topics. MSP said much of the information posted on the webpage was already publicly available, but the new webpage puts it all in one location for ease of access. Once this advanced research and analysis is completed, the results will be shared publicly.
