Bias Based Profiling


A Statement on Racial Profiling
Racial Profiling is specifically prohibited in Texas under the provisions of the Criminal Code of Procedure Articles 2.131-2.137. At the university police, our officers are further prohibited from engaging in bias based profiling in traffic contacts, field contacts and in asset seizure and forfeiture.


We have outlined a complaint process for those who believe they have been stopped or searched based on racial or bias based profiling. Complaints should be directed to the University Police Department Patrol Supervisors at 409.772.2691. All complaints will be investigated in a thorough and timely manner. If racial or bias based profiling occurs, as proven in sustained complaints, disciplinary action to include termination of employment and criminal prosecution may result. If bias based profiling behaviors are suspected, early intervention to correct such behavior may be appropriate and could include counseling, training and education.
