police profiling


Connecticut's first analysis of police traffic stops across the state has found racial and ethnic disparities that may suggest bias on the part of officers, but stops short of declaring that racial profiling is going on.

A forum will be held this evening at 6 p.m. at the stockade room at Schenectady County Community College in Schenectady on racial disparities in law enforcement. For more on the community forum on race and criminal justice in Schenectady WAMC’s Brian Shields spoke today with the organizer, Dr. Alice Green, executive director of the Center for Law and Justice in Albany.
