Traffic Stop

The Roseville Police Department has released its traffic stop data for 2019. This is the third year that Roseville Police have collected data on every stop as part of an ongoing initiative to increase transparency.

Starting in January 2017, Roseville officers began to record the following data on every traffic stop:

• The reason for the traffic stop
• Perceived race of the driver
• Sex of the driver
• Whether the driver was searched
• Whether the vehicle was searched
•If the driver was warned or cited

Details of the 4,123 stops made by Roseville Police in 2019, is accessible at Data for stops from 2017 and 2018 are also available.

According to the data for 2019, 77.8% of the traffic stops were initiated due to a moving violations. The remaining stops were for vehicle violations (17 percent) and investigative stops (5 percent) for things like warrants, attempts to locate a vehicle, or a vehicle matching a suspect description. The percentage of stops that resulted in a vehicular search was 4.1%, with individuals being searched in 3.3% of stops.

The goal of collecting and publicizing the data is to provide residents with a better understanding of how traffic laws are enforced in Roseville.

The Roseville Police Department will continue to take a comprehensive look at the data annually to determine what conclusions can be drawn from the information collected and use those conclusions to ensure that the department provides fair and impartial service to the community.

The Roseville Police Department welcomes feedback from citizens, as well as concerns or suggestions about how the police department can improve overall service to the community.
