Portland Police Claim To Have Eliminated Racial Difference In Traffic Stops

(Portland, OR) -- The Portland Police Bureau claims traffic stops conducted by its officers in 2022 had no significant differences in racial or ethnic groups of drivers. The Police Bureau released its Stops Data Collection Report for last year. It shows officers performed over 13-thousand stops, which was down three percent because the Traffic Division was cut due to staffing. That's expected to change this year because the division has been partially re-staffed. Less than one percent of drivers were asked to consent to a voluntary search, which is the lowest number since that started being tracked in 2018.
