JEFFERSON CITY — Missouri Attorney General Chris Koster plans to release the 10th annual statewide report of police vehicle stops.
The report uses data from the state's more than 700 law enforcement agencies. Police report the driver's race, age and gender. Also reported are the reasons for the traffic stop and if a ticket was issued. Police agencies that do not report their statistics can have state funding withheld by the governor's office.
Koster, a Democrat, planned to hold news conferences Tuesday about this year's traffic report in St. Louis and Kansas City. The attorney general also plans to demonstrate a new website that will include the police traffic stop data.
