The new regulations will come into full effect on Jan. 1, 2017. They feature an explicit ban on the use of race or place (i.e., being in a “high-crime area”) as a stand-alone justification for carding. Officers will be required to inform individuals that they have the right to know why they are being stopped and whether they have a legal obligation to speak with the officer(s). The regulations will also require officers to provide a receipt of the interaction, and they mandate that officers indicate the perceived racial background of the civilians they card.
