Racial Profiling Policy

Anna ISD Police Department Racial Profiling Statement and Policy:

On September 1, 2001, a new law prohibiting racial profiling went into effect in Texas. Article 3.05 of 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 Anna ISD Police Department, and State law, strictly prohibits officers from engaging in racial profiling. Each of our officers has received training concerning the racial profiling law and is provided with a copy of our departmental policy pertaining to racial profiling.

Complaints alleging racial profiling with respect to an individual may be filed with the Anna ISD Administration, Attn: Superintendent, 501 South Sherley, Anna, Texas 75409. A complaint should be submitted in writing and in a timely manner after the incident so that the incident can receive prompt attention. Once the complaint is received, the Superintendent will initiate an investigation into the matter.
