Dr. Cato T. Laurencin talks ‘bias-based’ police stops with WNPR

Dr. Cato T. Laurencin, chief executive officer of CICATS and an advisory board member of the Connecticut Racial Profiling Prohibition Project (CTRP3), recently spoke with WNPR’s Jeff Cohen on the topic of “bias-based policing.” On the program “All Things Considered,” host Cohen discussed a recent state effort led by CTRP3 to collect and analyze traffic stop data, and this report showed the Hamden (CT) Police Department had a disproportionately higher number of minority drivers in police stops compared to whites. Dr. Laurencin, who is overseeing the state’s research, spoke with Cohen. You can listen to the interview by clicking below.
