The Connecticut Racial Profiling Prohibition Project's mission is to bring together community stakeholders and law enforcement to identify and address racial and ethnic disparities in traffic enforcement.
Every year, there are approximately 550,000 traffic stops in Connecticut. CTRP3 works with the state's 94 municipal police departments, Connecticut State Police, and other special police agencies to identify racial and ethnic disparities through data collection and statistical analysis.How we analyze Data
Named after the late State Senator Alvin W. Penn, Connecticut’s anti-racial profiling law prohibits any law enforcement agency from stopping, detaining, or searching any motorist when the stop is motivated solely by considerations of the race, color, ethnicity, age, gender or sexual orientation of that individual.About the Alvin W. Penn Act
The Connecticut Racial Profiling Prohibition Project has partnered with the Connecticut Data Collaborative to provide access to raw traffic stop data and summary tables for each police department in Connecticut.
