Probing Racial Profiling: Connecticut State Police Under Scrutiny

The U.S. Department of Justice is doing a probe on the Connecticut State Police in connection to an audit that showed more than 1,000 state troopers issued at least one fake ticket during an eight year period, between 2014 and 2021.

800,000 tickets were looked at by a racial profiling board, and were then compared to those that made their way through the court system. Of those tickets, between 26,000 and 58,000 were falsified. One trooper even wrote almost 1,400 fake tickets in three years.

The data was made to seem like there were more white drivers pulled over than black or Hispanic driver. The false information put into the database is stopping analysts from creating correct reports on the race and ethnicity of drivers who are stopped by the Connecticut State Police, which have previously shown that the state police were pulling over black and Hispanic drivers at disproportionate rates.

Because of the false information, this means that the rate of racial profiling could be worse than what was previously shown. Some of the motivation behind the audit was due to a report showing that four troopers intentionally made hundreds of false traffic tickets to increase their productivity numbers.

State police unions do not want to names of the officers to be released for their health and safety.
