RIPA police stop data - basis for searches conducted

The basis for any search conducted as part of stop by the San Diego Police Department. This data is collected according to requirements set forth in Government Code section 12525.5 that was enacted as a result of the Racial and Identity Profiling Act of 2015 (AB 953), also known as RIPA.

The file contains one row for each reason a search was conducted per person stopped by police, if a search occurred. Police may not have conducted any searches during a stop, or police may have had more than one reason to search a stopped person and/or the person’s property. The person stopped is uniquely identified in the pid field, and the stop is uniquely identified in the stop_id field. These two fields can be used to join this dataset to the other RIPA datasets available at the following links:
