Livonia Traffic Stop FOIA Fundraising

LCCABL is continuing our efforts toward building trust between Livonia law enforcement and our community by encouraging transparency and accountability. We are making progress but have been unable to obtain certain traffic stop data that is critical to our efforts to address what appears to be a lingering practice of race-based traffic stops by some officers.

The Livonia Police Department has finally responded to our traffic stop data request, but the request has once again fallen short. You will see in the FOIA response and cost estimate from the LPD , that we need $13,084.50 to be able to have full transparency of the following information:

All written records of traffic stops conducted by the Livonia Police Department from July 1, 2019 through December 31, 2019, including but not limited to all citations, written warnings, and records of stops or seizures where no citation(s) or warning(s) were issued, whether or not there was an arrest of any subjects.

At a minimum please include the following information:  
- Corresponding traffic ticket data to include:
* Ticket Number
* Driver Sex
* Driver Age
* Driver Race
* Reason for Stop
- Number of Passengers
* Passenger Sex
* Passenger Age
* Passenger Race
- Date and time of stop
- Officer Name
- Officer Badge Number
- Vehicle Plate Information
- Location
- Whether driver or passengers were arrested
* Basis for arrest

The limited data that LPD did share can be found here , but we need your help to fund the full FOIA data cost, so Livonia residents can finally get access to the information they deserve. We pledge that every penny donated to this fund will be spent on FOIA requests to support this initiative. 

Thank you for your support!
