Racial Bias Notice
Commitment to Unbiased Law Enforcement Conduct
The Dodge City Police Department is committed to providing unbiased, equitable treatment of all persons in enforcing state law and local ordinances while providing law enforcement services. As such, it is the policy of the Dodge City Police Department to treat all persons having contact with this agency in a fair, equitable, and objective manner, in accordance with law, and without consideration of their race, ethnicity, national origin, gender, or religious dress.
All law enforcement officers of the Dodge City Police Department are prohibited from engaging in "Racial Profiling". "Racial Profiling" means the practice of a law enforcement officer or agency relying, as the sole factor, on race, ethnicity, national origin, gender or religious dress in selecting which individuals to subject to routine investigatory activity, or in deciding upon the scope and substance of law enforcement activity following the initial routine investigatory activity. Racial profiling does not include reliance on such criteria in combination with other identifying factors when the law enforcement officer or agency is seeking to apprehend a specific suspect whose race, ethnicity, national origin, gender or religious dress is part of the description of the suspect.
Complaints of alleged racial profiling may be made by telephone or in person at the Dodge City Police Department or by delivering or mailing a written statement, signed by the complaining party or parties to the Chief of Police, Dodge City Police Department, 110 West Spruce, Dodge City, Kansas 67801 and/or by delivering such complaint to the offices of the Kansas Commission of Civil Rights at 100 Military Avenue, Dodge City, Kansas 67801. All such complaints will be processed in a timely manner in accordance with department investigation policies.
