Stops, Field Interviews, Search and Seizure

The Albany Police Department reported conducting 22,349 field interviews between January 2012 and May 2015, equivalent to an average of 545 stops each month. While the number of reported stops decreased over this three and a half year period, disparities among who was targeted for these stops remained fairly constant. On average, one of every 31 Hispanic residents and one of every 20 white residents were stopped by the police each year, compared with one of every eight black residents.
