Report: PPB Stops Black Drivers At Higher Rate Than White Drivers

(Portland, OR) -- A new report shows the Portland Police Bureau stops a higher percentage of Black drivers for non-moving violations and those drivers are searched more often. Earlier this year, the Police Bureau was ordered to take action to reduce traffic stops for non-moving violations and to tell drivers they have a right to deny their consent of a search. The overall number of traffic stops were down last year because the pandemic had fewer drivers on the roads.
