Bias-Based Policing Prohibited
The LBPD has policy and procedure in place which prohibits bias-based policing which meets PLEAC Accreditation standards. LBPD policy prohibits any traffic stop, field contact, vehicle search, asset seizure/forfeiture, or other enforcement action based solely on a common trait of a group; to include race, ethnic background, gender, sexual orientation, religion, economic status, age or cultural group. All written allegations of bias-based profiling will be investigated. The LBPD has corrective action plans in place for any substantial allegation of bias-based policing to include disciplinary measures and/or training. PLEAC Accreditation standards require review of this data on an annual basis; however, the LBPD has elected to conduct the review more frequently on a quarterly basis. Each quarter's review will be posted here for public inspection.
