Urban Disadvantage, Social Disorganization and Police Race-Specific Search Rates: An Ecological Analysis Across High and Low Disadvantaged Neighborhoods

Abstract:

Racial profiling by law enforcement agents has gained much attention from academic scholars in the recent past. The literature varies greatly in scope and includes measurement of citizen perceptions of police practices, citizen self-report data on contacts with police, and actual police stop data. However, findings from research in this area vary greatly and often fail to take into account ecological context and neglect to incorporate theory as a factor guiding research. This research seeks to compensate for these deficiencies and add to the literature by enhancing our understanding of racial profiling through theory-based research. Using data collected from more than 61,000 police stops in a large southern city, this research will examine factors that influence race-specific search rates independently for neighborhoods of high and low disadvantage to explore as well as compare the contributions of the urban economy/disadvantage and disorganization theories to the study of racial profiling.
