Epp on Forest Service traffic stops

Thursday, October 8, 2015

Professor_Charles_EppProfessor Charles Epp was quoted in a USA Today article titled, "Forest Service discrimination prompts tracking of stops." Here's an excerpt of the article:

"An embarrassing episode of discrimination by the U.S. Forest Service in 2011 concluded this month with the introduction of a nationwide policy requiring officers to collect race data at traffic stops. Forest law enforcement officers, some 500 scattered across the U.S.A., will now have to record 'perceived' race information after stopping vehicles."
