police | Department profile

The Glastonbury police department pulled over 4406 drivers and had a disparity score of 0 out of 9, indicating no "consistent" disparities in the department's traffic stop practices.

CCSU researchers designed a series of measures to score police departments based on how much stopping practices varied from the state average, as well as gaps between population and stops to identify racial disparity. A point was assigned to a department for every threshold exceeded. Scores range from zero to nine. Zero indicates no sign of disparity. Any score higher than zero indicates some degree of disparity. In this list, any department without a red circle had a zero score. Scores are based in part on the racial makeup of the estimated driving population in towns. Some departments, such as university police departments at Yale and the CSCU schools, do not correspond to towns and do not have scores.
