The Supplemental Report was released on October 18, 2018. The report includes an in-depth follow-up analysis of the 8 municipal police departments identified in the November 2017 report. A main goal for the follow-up analysis was to better understand whether statistical disparities identified in the department level analysis could be driven by specific department-wide practices or by individual officers. Ultimately the approach included in this report is a mix of previously utilized and newly developed statistical and descriptive analyses, coupled with an on-going dialogue with each department.
