Racial Profiling Report

In 2001, the Texas legislature, in an attempt to address the issue of racial profiling in policing, enacted the Texas Racial Profiling Law. Since 2001, the Fort Worth Police Department, in accordance with the law, has collected and reported traffic-related contact data for the purpose of identifying and addressing (if necessary) areas of concern regarding racial profiling practices. During the past legislative session, the Racial Profiling Law was modified and new requirements are now in place. Below is information about how to file a racial profile complaint, a staff action report in response to a question regarding the 2010 Racial Profiling Report, and the Fort Worth Police Department's Racial Profiling Reports from 2002 to the latest report:
