Breakdown of Arrests and Citations by Race, Ethnicity and Gender 2014 to 2019
In response to questions about disproportionate minority police contact, our police department compiled its available statistics for the years 2014 through 2019. The US Census Bureau’s demographic estimates for 2018 are included for reference.
Our police department doesn’t currently track racial or gender statistics on stops or other contacts, and the software used by Johnson County’s countywide dispatch does not have a tracking system for personal identifiable information such as race.
Our police department intends to increase its frequency of review of police officer activity and assessing if its dispatch software can include other information categories in the database so it can track additional information points.
More detailed breakdowns for the years 2014 through 2019, including by gender and of juvenile arrests and citations, is available for download here. A PDF of the below graphs is also available for download.
