VT Edition: Racial Profiling in Vermont

Print More

Vermont is one of only two states that don’t collect information on race during police traffic stops.  We look into Uncommon Alliance, a community program that’s working to identify and measure possible cases of racial profiling. 

As part of that program, police officers in four Chittenden county communities have been collecting data on race when they make traffic stops for the past six months. 

VPR’s Jane Lindholm talks with Christine Longmore, one of the founding members of Uncommon Alliance, Trevor Whipple, the South Burlington Police Chief, and Robert Appel, the Executive Director of the Vermont Human Rights Commission about racial profiling in Vermont.
