(20 ILCS 2715/5)
    Sec. 5. Legislative purpose. The purpose of this Act is to identify and address bias-based policing through the monitoring, review, and improvement of the collection of racial profiling information collected under the Illinois Traffic Stop Statistical Study. Through this data collection and review, a more accurate understanding of this problem can be obtained, thus allowing the concerns of the motoring public to be better addressed, resources such as specialized training to be provided, the honest efforts of Illinois' law enforcement professionals to be demonstrated, and the civil rights of all Illinois citizens to be protected.
