The Citizen Contact Receipt

To ensure safe and responsible interactions between officers and citizens on LCC campuses, the Police Department has created The Citizen Contact Receipt, or Stop Receipt. A responding officer gives a Stop Receipt to any individual with whom the officer has official contact. Stop Receipts are actual, physical pieces of paper containing all the relevant information resulting from a person's interactions with LCC police: time, date, location, officer name and service number, reason for interaction, race, gender, and the result of the interaction. Other information pertaining to force or other aspects of police intervention will also be chronicled on Stop Receipts.

Situations that might require an officer to issue a Stop Receipt include car stops, interviews relating to an investigation, detention, arrest, and any other interaction with police that occurs as part of official business or investigation.

The Citizen Contact Receipt allows for a high level of transparency with the citizens we serve, and accountability for officers' investigative interactions with the community. It will allow supervisors to conduct more thorough daily monitoring of officer activities, which will assist them in detecting any patterns of behavior in terms of the targeting or profiling of certain individuals be it through race, gender, age etc.

The Citizen Contact receipt went into effect on August 16, 2021. Officers have been issuing receipts since that date.
