------------------11% Totals represent the number of charges, not the number of persons charged. Some persons may have been charged more than once. Charges filed do not necessarily represent custodial arrests. Since 2016, the number of City employees has decreased overall. Since 2018, when the category was created, no staff have identified as “Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander.” “Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander” and “Two or more races” are reporting categories added in 2018 due to changes in EEOC requirements. While racial discrimination complaints increased 11%, the total number of complaints received by the Human Rights Office decreased 11% over 2016. Youth charges are referrals to Juvenile Court Services. Because of the unique circumstances of COVID-19, 2020 percentage comparisons are not useful. *2020 is impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic and thus should be considered in that context.
