In 2016, the California legislature passed Assembly Bill 953, the Racial and Identity Profiling Act (RIPA). RIPA mandates that California law enforcement agencies collect and report officer‐perceived identity information including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, and nationality of subjects of police stops. RIPA is meant to be used as a tool to monitor and ensure accountability and transparency among the 500+ police agencies in California. This data is then to be shared with the State of California Department of Justice and their RIPA Board where it will be used for the purpose of review, analysis, and research to eliminate racial and identity profiling in the State of California and improve police‐community relations. The bill has been rolled out incrementally by agency size and every agency in the State is required to begin reporting by April 1, 2023.
In this session, Sgt. Steve Rego from the City of Berkeley Police Department will present how BPD is using Survey123 to collect and share this data with the State as well as to support his agency’s own transparency and accountability efforts. Survey123 is an application that most city and county agencies already have access to through their current Esri licensing; the form‐driven Survey123 is easily configurable to the RIPA questionnaire. Sgt. Rego will discuss how BPD set up and rolled it out at his agency, how the app works, their review process, and how it gets shared to the DOJ to meet state reporting requirements. Sgt. Rego will be joined by John Beck and Jason Latoski from Esri to demonstrate the technology and share additional resources for your agency to get started. Anyone from your agency having a direct role in RIPA Data Collection is strongly encouraged to participate.
