OMAHA, Neb. (AP) A new report by a civil liberties group says Nebraska law enforcement officers stop and arrest a disproportionate number of non-white drivers.

The report released Tuesday by the American Civil Liberties Union of Nebraska says African-American and Hispanic drivers in the state are more likely than white drivers to be stopped, searched and arrested. The ACLU used data compiled by the Nebraska Crime Commission for the report.

As an example, the report notes that black drivers make up 9.6 percent of stops in Lincoln, even though blacks make up only 3.5 percent of the city's population.

The ACLU suggests that the Nebraska Law Enforcement Training Center in Grand Island and individual departments implement annual training specifically designed to address racial profiling.
