New Chief Expands Racial Profiling Definition
February 22, 2011
The new San Jose (Calif.) Police chief has expanded the definition of racial profiling, a move the department's independent watchdog and minority groups are calling a major shift in dealing with officer bias, reports the San Jose Mercury News.
The change by Chief Chris Moore makes it a policy violation for an officer to show "any biased behavior at any time during an encounter with the public." In the past four years, the department investigated 150 bias complaints and didn't sustain any of them.

WOW, what a blow to the troops. I guess you guys know your chief is bought and paid for. I do not work for SJPD, but I have worked with members of this department. I have always found the officers to be very professional and well trained. I am sorry to see this happen.
I guess you guys can hope that your new chief "vapor locks"since he a piece of crap. I feel for you guys, good luck thanks for the support chief.
