About the Contact Data/Stop Data

You can view our historical data for 2020, 2019, 2018, 2017

In June 2021, UCIPD completed its testing with the California Department of Justice (DOJ) and was approved to submit data to the DOJ starting July 1, 2021. This accomplishment is notable as UCIPD was two years ahead of the legally mandated timeline of 2023. 

Under the RIPA requirements, law enforcement agencies are required to submit data annually and DOJ publishes it to the RIPA website annually.  Given the importance of this data to our community, UCIPD is submitting to DOJ-RIPA on a monthly basis and publishing the data to this website each month.

A Brief History

To collect the vast amount of data required under RIPA, law enforcement agencies have or are in the process of contracting with their Computer Aided Dispatch (CAD) and Records Management System (RMS) vendors to develop software within these existing systems.

UCI Police Department contracts with Sunridge Systems Inc. for both its CAD and RMS. Sunridge provides these services to 179 law enforcement agencies in California, including six of the ten UC Police Departments. Sunridge has been developing the software so each of its customers can collect and report RIPA data.

In 2017, while waiting for the software development, UCI Police started to collect race data from Officer Initiated Contacts and published this data each month to the Department’s website - five years ahead of the RIPA requirement.

In October 2019, the department discovered that a change by our CAD/RMS vendor prevented us from accurately tracking officer initiated contact data.

The release of the Racial and Identity Profiling Act (RIPA) data collection module was purported to be close at hand (a few months away), so a decision was made to stop posting data until its release because of the inaccuracies.

In May 2020, because the system correction took longer than expected, the UCI Police Department developed a new method for capturing race data along with an audit mechanism to ensure the data is accurate and began monthly publishing of the data again.

In January 2021, additional data points were included. At the same time, we developed a dynamic interface using Microsoft Power BI that offers our community a vibrant tool to review the wealth of information in a simple yet more engaging, format.
