– Attorney General Paula T. Dow announced
today the release of the Second Public Report
of Aggregate Data on State Police activity
prepared by the Attorney General’s
Office of Law Enforcement Professional Standards
report covers a six-month period spanning
July 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009.
In addition to the Second Public Report
of Aggregate Date, OLEPS today issued an
“Errata” document correcting
inaccuracies in both the First Public Report
of Aggregate Data and an earlier, Nineteenth
Semiannual Report issued while a federal
Consent Decree was still in place. The Consent
Decree was dissolved in 2009.
the Errata report corrects errors attributable
to a computer programming issue that affected
the counting of speeding summonses issued
along the New Jersey Turnpike (Troop D)
and the Garden State Parkway (Troop E).
The programming issue began in December
2008 and was corrected in September 2010.
gathered for the Second Public Report of
Aggregate Data – the same report being
issued today -- was corrected prior to its
publication. However, in both the First
Public Report of Aggregate Data and the
Nineteenth Semiannual Report, traffic stops
in which Troopers wrote at least one ticket
for a moving violation were undercounted,
while stops in which Troopers issued non-moving
violations were inflated.
Second Public Report of Aggregate Data,
as well as the Errata document, can be viewed
by going to the OLEPS Web page at www.nj.gov/oag/oleps/reports.html.
