The Police Commission unanimously approved an expanded and stricter anti-bias policy in an attempt to decrease instances of suspects and arrestees being subjected to racial bias and profiling by cops patrolling the streets.

Under the new policy, cops must provide their name, rank and the reason for stopping someone before they can ask for the civilian’s identification, among others. Public Defender Mano Raja supports the new policy, that now must be subjected to scrutiny by the contentions police officers association before it can be formally adopted by the department.
