Profiling info on attorney general’s website

  • Published Monday, June 11, 2012, at 6:42 a.m.

Each Monday, The Eagle highlights a government record that is available to the public. Open records help people keep government in check and help them better understand how government affects their lives.

For a complete list of You Oughta Know columns, go to www.kansas.com/oughta.

The record: Kansas attorney general’s report on racial and bias-based policing.

Why you’d want it: To learn more about racial and other profiling in Kansas. State law requires every Kansas law enforcement agency to have a racial or biased-based policing policy. The report lists the number of complaints filed with each law enforcement agency. Many agencies do not have any complaints. The most recent report is from January to June 2011.

Where you get it: From the attorney general office’s website, www.ksag.org. Click on the “Public Safety” tab at the top of the page and then on the “Racial and Bias-Based Policing” link.

How much the record will cost: The information is free.
