SAN DIEGO (February 27, 2017) – Councilmember Alvarez has issued the following statement regarding a report from San Diego State University regarding San Diego Police Department’s vehicle stop data cards.
“The independent traffic stop data reported on by SDSU shows the presence of racial disparity in the San Diego Police Department. The City of San Diego needs to accept this uncomfortable reality and must address it with swift and decisive action. The Council deferring meaningful action to a later date only continues the problem.”
