Synopsis As Introduced
Amends the Illinois Vehicle Code provision regarding a traffic stop statistical study currently in progress. Provides that from January 1, 2006 until December 31, 2007, whenever a State or local law enforcement officer stops a pedestrian on the basis of reasonable suspicion of criminal activity, the officer must record certain information, including the officer's subjective determination of the stopped person's race. Requires law enforcement agencies to collect and transmit the recorded data to the Department of Transportation. Requires the Department to analyze the data for evidence of statistically significant aberrations concerning the race of stopped pedestrians and to make annual reports.

Senate Committee Amendment No. 1
Provides that only officers of the Chicago Police Department (rather than every State or local law enforcement officer) must record the required information. Provides that only the Chicago Police Department (rather than every law enforcement agency) is required to collect the recorded information and transmit it to the Department of Transportation.

Senate Floor Amendment No. 2
Deletes everything after the enacting clause. Reinserts the provisions of the amended bill with changes and deletions. Deletes provisions requiring collection of the information by individual officers on a uniform stop card. Deletes language imposing on the Chicago Police Department a duty to collect the information. Provides that, in regard to cases where the officer does not arrest the person, the Chicago Police Department shall transmit the specified information to the Department of Transportation, to the extent that the Chicago Police Department has collected that information from individual officers who noted the information on any form completed in the course of the stop.
