Stops, Citations, and Arrests

Making proactive and reactive stops of pedestrians and motor vehicles are functions of policing. Often these stops involve a preceding event such as a traffic violation. In other instances, stops can be more proactive, such as a Terry Stop. In some cases, the matter is resolved through communication (e.g., warning), in other cases a summons or citation may be issued, and in other cases, an physical arrest may be made.

Agencies releasing stops, citations and arrest data may be releasing data on all of these circumstances or only some, such as traffic stops or arrests. It is also important to note that some data sets may overlap in certain cases, such as a stop, followed by a citation or arrest.
