Biased Policing


It is the policy of this Office to patrol in a proactive manner, to aggressively investigate suspicious persons and circumstances, and to actively enforce the motor vehicle laws. This will occur while insisting that citizens will only be stopped or detained when there exists reasonable suspicion to believe they have committed, are committing, or are about to commit, an infraction of the law. It is against the policy of this agency to conduct biased policing while conducting:

  • Asset seizures
  • Field contacts
  • Forfeitures
  • Searches and seizures
  • Traffic contacts

To view the procedure, please review the Biased Policing Policy (PDF).
