In recent years there have been numerous widely publicized cases of bias policing, and the negative consequences are available for public consumption. This project examines left-leaning counties in the Bay Area to see if a similar bias and pattern of policing is prevalent. Data will be collected by interviewing experts to gain the perspective of police officers to learn the measures they are taking to prevent bias from occurring. This data will potentially reveal where the flaws in the system are and possible solutions for addressing police bias.
