What is Racial Profiling?
Art. 3.05. RACIAL PROFILING.

The Compliant Process:
This department accepts complaints from any person who believes that he or she has been stopped or searched based on racial, ethnic or national origin profiling. No person shall be discouraged, intimidated, or coerced from filing a complaint, nor discriminated against because he or she filed such a complaint.
How to Make a Complaint:
Complaints may be initiated in person at Southside ISD Police Department or by phone (210) 882-1620 during regular hours.
