Question description

profiling when conducting enforcement but may inadvertently employ racial profiling because of a lack of understanding and differentiation between the two philosophies.  I would agree that racial profiling happens, but I don't necessarily believe that all officers are making a conscious decision to profile in this manner.  I also don't believe this makes an officer a racist.  Training and education are the key factors in reducing these incidents across the law enforcement community.

While this conversation has focused on racial profiling by law enforcement officers, we also see community members calling the police about individuals they don't recognize or believe should be in their community.  How should law enforcement respond to these calls?  In these situations, officers are responding to the calls of the community but the officer is often blamed for racially profiling.  What are your thoughts?  Does it help law enforcement's cause when they educate the public regarding racial and criminal profiling?  Do we see more claims of racial profiling today than we did 20 years ago?  Why?

While this conversation has focused on racial profiling by law enforcement officers, we also see community members calling the police about individuals they don't recognize or believe should be in their community. When it comes to racial profiling  how should law enforcement respond to these calls?  A recent Gallup Poll—involving 2,006 telephone interviews with randomly selected U.S. adults and conducted during the period from late-September to mid-November, 1999—found that 56 percent of whites and 77 percent of blacks believe that racial profiling is a widespread practice in the United States. Only 6 percent of whites but 42 percent of blacks believe that they had been stopped by the police just because of their ethnic background. (Cleary, 2000, p.8).

“Racial profiling occurs when a police officer stops, questions, arrests, and/or searches someone solely on the basis of the person’s race or ethnicity” (Cleary, 2000, p. 5). Part of a officers job is to respond to calls.  It was other people that called the police in the first place. But, there are those that read into the headlines different and come up with their own point of views. "the police officer who was simply responding to those calls” (Clifton, 2014).
