Attorney General Jay Nixon’s Advisory Committee on Racial Profiling is on the way to taking steps to stop racial profiling – a practice sometimes referred to as “D.W.B.” or “Driving While Black.” 690 law enforcement agencies throughout the state were required to submit reports on racial profiling by March 1st. Of that number, 558 did so, but 132 did not. Nixon says he’s contacting the delinquent communities to inform them they are late, and to advise them that non-compliance could result in punitive measures, including the withholding of state funds. Information from the reports filed with the Attorney General’s Office should be known on or around June 1st, when Nixon’s report will be filed with the General Assembly.
