Colorado Lawmakers Weigh Electronic Police Citations

September 29, 2015  | 

Colorado lawmakers studying ways to collect data on racial profiling by law enforcement said Monday they would consider having some agencies issue citations electronically to make it easier to compile information, reports the Associated Press.

Their proposal would include a new optional system of people self-reporting their ethnicity when they get a driver's licenses to try to get more accurate information.

Lawmakers are drafting the bill for next year. The measure would start as a test pilot for up to five years, with six yet-to-be named agencies and the state patrol participating through a grant program. Besides the state patrol, lawmakers said they want the agencies that participate in the pilot to do so voluntarily. But they also want to have a mix or rural and urban departments and in larger and smaller population areas.
