Racial Profiling Information

  • Texas law strictly prohibits racial profiling; the Texas Code of Criminal Procedure defines racial profiling as "a law enforcement-initiated action based on the 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."

    The Beaumont ISD Police Department prohibits officers from engaging in any type of racial profiling. Each officer has received Racial Profiling #3256 (TCOLE) training concerning the racial profiling law and are also provided a copy of departmental policy pertaining to racial profiling.
