Open Data Policing NC aggregates, visualizes, and publishes public records related to all known traffic stops to have occurred in North Carolina since January 1, 2002. Enter an agency name into the search field above to review data on the racial and ethnic demographics of people stopped, searched, and subjected to force in the course of traffic stops in a given jurisdiction. Data is available for most North Carolina departments and officers serving populations greater than 10,000.
North Carolina law requires all such agencies to report their data on a monthly basis to the NC Department of Justice; however, some datasets are incomplete or remain unreported. Where data sets are incomplete or missing from the website it is because they have not been reported to the state agency from which the site derives its records. Open Data Policing does not have access to, nor does it publish, the names of officers, drivers, or passengers involved in traffic stops.
