Racial Profiling

The Rowlett Police Department recognizes that our society holds the freedoms of the individual as a fundamental concept. Therefore, we strive to enforce policy and procedures that serve to ensure public confidence and mutual trust through the delivery of police services that are fair and equitable.

Members of this Department will not infringe upon this freedom without just, legal and necessary cause. State law and Rowlett Police Department General Orders strictly prohibit police officers from engaging in racial profiling.
