Texas agencies are faced with questions regarding data requirements, modifications of racial profiling policies, and analysis-related issues. In order to address this, ILEA will offer a one day seminar instructed by Dr. Alex del Carmen, one of America’s leading experts on racial profiling issues and author of the book, Racial Profiling in America.

Dr. del Carmen will focus this seminar on the new requirements and offer assistance on the manner in which agencies should analyze and report data.

This course is designed to address the current managerial problems and critical issues facing law enforcement agencies with regard to racial profiling. Discussion will overview several areas including defining, measuring and collecting data on racial profiling. In addition, the course will cover the analysis, reporting and dissemination of racial profiling data. The focus of this program is on managing this critical and volatile information in order to ensure positive interaction among the police agency, the community and other governmental entities.
