Vehicle Stop Committee

Police Chief Geoff Jones appointed the Vehicle Stop Committee on April 23, 2019. The committee addresses disparities in Columbia’s vehicle stop rates by:

  1. Examining existing data.
  2. Identifying variables affecting an officer’s decision to stop a vehicle.
  3. Finding solutions, methods or processes to fill data gaps.
  4. Setting a timeline for research.
  5. Identifying policing training/best practices that should be examined for changes.
  6. Reaching consensus on recommendations proposed to Chief Jones. 

The full Committee meets the second Tuesday of each month, from 5:30 to 7 p.m., in the Mezzanine Conference Room, City Hall, 701 E. Broadway. Meetings are free and open to the public.
