Traffic Stop Race Data Collection Project
The Ottawa Police Service (OPS) is committed to developing and maintaining the trust of the community it serves by providing responsive, effective and equitable policing to all residents. We are committed to the principle that all persons have the right to live and work in an environment that is free of police action based on racial bias and racial profiling.
Starting June 27, 2013, Ottawa Police Officers, by their observation only, will record the race of the driver at all traffic (motor vehicle) stops for a two year period.
The Traffic Stop Race Data Collection Project is the result of a settlement agreement between the Ottawa Police Services Board (Board) and the Ontario Human Rights Commission (OHRC). A full copy of the agreement (PDF).
