Veritone Contact Helps California Law Enforcement Agencies Meet RIPA Obligations

Under the California Racial and Identity Profiling Act, by 2022, over 500 law enforcement agencies within the state will be required to collect detailed perceived demographic information during traffic or pedestrian stops.

Once collected, each law enforcement agency is responsible for ensuring that no personally identifiable information (PII) is included in the data set. Next, this information must be securely transmitted to the California State Department of Justice.

The process of collection and review is already significantly impacting the time officers are available for patrol. Further, records management teams — already inundated with increased open records requests for redacted body-worn camera footage and other evidence requests — are now overwhelmed with PII review of this information too.
