Bias-Based Profiling
The issue of bias-based profiling is one of the more disturbing and controversial issues to confront law enforcement agencies and the communities they serve in recent memory. While virtually all the evidence to date is subjective, there exists the perception that law enforcement officers enforce traffic laws based on a driver having a certain trait common to a group. This is a troubling development and one which causes concern to anyone charged with the enforcement of the laws of the State of Texas.

It is the responsibility of the Nolan County Sheriff's Office to provide law enforcement, and related services to the citizens and visitors of Nolan County in a pro-active manner. In accomplishing this, deputies must be observant, identify unusual occurrences and actively enforce all laws in a responsible and professional manner, equally and without regard to race, ethnicity, ethnic background, gender, sexual orientation, religion, economic status, age, cultural group, national origin or any other identifiable group. Bias-based profiling shall not be tolerated in enforcement efforts.

The Nolan County Sheriff's Office is responsible for ensuring that all citizens of the community are treated with dignity and respect, agency policy prohibits bias-based profiling.

Bias-based profiling issues, including legal aspects, are provided to sworn members of the agency during in-service training, in accordance with the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement (TCOLE) requirements.
