Stop Data Regulations, California Racial and Identity Profiling Act of 2015 (AB 953)


On October 3, 2015, Governor Brown signed Assembly Bill (AB) 953, the Racial and Identity Profiling Act of 2015. AB 953, among other things, enacted Government Code section 12525.5, which requires state and local law enforcement agencies, as specified, to collect data regarding stops of individuals, including perceived demographic information on the person stopped, and to report this data to the California Attorney General’s Office. AB 953 requires the Attorney General to issue regulations for the collection and reporting of this stop data. (Gov. Code, § 12525.5, subd. (e).)

The Attorney General’s Office has drafted these proposed regulations. The public comment period closed on January 27, 2017. Please subscribe to the AB 953 Mailing List to stay apprised of next steps in the rulemaking process.
