Racial Identity Profiling Act (RIPA)
In compliance with the 2015 Racial Identity Profiling Act, the Long Beach Police Department was one of seven law enforcement agencies required to begin collecting stop data on January 1, 2019, for individuals stopped by police and consensual encounters that resulted in a search. The Department will collect data for each calendar year and will submit the data to the California Department of Justice on an annual basis.
Data elements collected include demographic information of the stopped individuals that is perceived by the officer. This demographic information consists of race/ethnicity, gender, LGBT identity, age, English fluency, and perceived or known disability. The date, time, location, reason for stop, actions taken, contraband/evidence discovered, property seized, and result of stop are also included in the data collected.
As part of the City’s commitment to transparency, the raw data is being released to the public prior to the completion of a comprehensive analysis of the data. Updated information will be added to this page as it becomes available.
