A special task force will help the attorney general implement Missouri’s new law against racial profiling. The task force is made up of 15 members, most from law enforcement, but it also includes a clergyman, a member of the ACLU and even a law student. Lee’s Summit Police Chief Ken Conlee represents the Missouri Police Chief’s Association on the task force. Conlee says police officers he’s talked with don’t like the extra paperwork associated with the law, but believe it will disclose they don’t routinely engage in racial profiling.
