Bias Profiling

It will be the policy of the Rhome Police Department not to condemn any citizen contacts based solely on race and address any violation of this policy with appropriate employees.

Definitions:

BIAS BASED PROFILING: Bias based profiling means law enforcement initiated action based on an individual’s race, ethnicity, or national origin rather than on the individual’s behavior or on information identifying the individual as having engaged in criminal activity.

RACE OR ETHNICITY: Race or ethnicity means a particular descent, including Caucasian, African, Hispanic, Asian, or Native American descent.

ACTS OF BIAS BASED PROFILING: Acts of bias based profiling include traffic and pedestrian stops based on an individual’s race or ethnicity rather than the individual’s action or based upon reasonable suspicion.

PROHIBITION OF BIAS BASED PROFILING: All peace officers employed by the Rhome Police Department are strictly prohibited from engaging in bias based profiling.
