The Vermont State Police are releasing an analysis of the past five years of traffic stops. We're talking with experts about what the data show.

The Vermont State Police, along with experts from Northeastern University, are presenting an analysis of data from five years worth of traffic stops.

We're looking what the information shows about potential bias, race, justice, and how the state police operate.

We're talking to Captain Ingrid Jonas, Vermont State Police's director of Fair and Impartial Policing and Community Affairs, and Jack McDevitt, director of Northeastern University's Institute on Race and Justice. We'll also hear from Curtiss Reed Jr., executive director of the Vermont Partnership for Fairness and Diversity.

You can find a full analysis of the traffic stop data here.
