In an effort to comply with The Texas Racial Profiling Law, the UT System Police Department commissioned the analysis of its 2015 motor vehicle contact data. Thus, careful evaluation of the 2015 motor vehicle related data was performed. This particular analysis measured, as required by law, the number and percentage of Caucasians, African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Native Americans and Middle Easterners that came in contact with the Police in the Course of a motor vehicle stop, and were either issued a citation or arrested. In addition, as required by Tier 1 reporting, the analysis was made on the searches conducted and if the officers knew the race/ethnicity of the suspect before being detained.
