I am the managing editor of Peninsula Press, a multimedia news website based out of Stanford University in California. We are working on collecting data on traffic stops and searches made by state patrols across the country.

I am requesting the raw data of traffic stops made in your state and laid out in your record description for the last ten (10) years. The fields of data include:

Hi Vignesh,
I apologize for the delay obtaining the additional material. Our analyst Roberta Emmons will be mailing you a disk with the information. It was too large to send by e-mail. We have to work with other departments to obtain this material. Thanks for your patience.
