Low-level stops and field interviews are among the most common interactions between police officers and the public, but they’re also among the least transparent and most susceptible to abuse. Police departments need policies that guide officers through complex legal standards and that include clear protections for people’s rights during these encounters. And departments and local officials must commit to requiring that demographic information be collected and reported, so that the public can have the information it needs to confront any disparities in enforcement.
