Dubuque City Council to vote on independent study about traffic stops

Posted: Updated:
DUBUQUE (KWWL) -

Tonight, the Dubuque City Council will decide whether to approve an agreement between the city and St. Ambrose University to do a traffic stop study.

Last week, City Manager Michael Van Milligen said in a memo to city council members, "Traffic stops are an area of policing that receives public scrutiny across the country. Many traffic stops are made at an officer’s discretion, and therefore open to concerns about bias impacting an officer’s decisions."

He says an independent external analysis will help provide an objective review of traffic stops.
