In accordance with SOP 960- (Biased Based Profiling) and CFA 2.06 (E), I have completed an annual administrative review of the agency practices, citizen complaints and any documented concerns that may have been received. The following is a breakdown of the information reviewed:
• In accordance with FSS 316.614, the records division has successfully submitted their quarterly reports to the DHSMV for the 2020 Seat Belt Violation Data Collection System. Each of these reports documents a non-biased approach to the issuance of these citations. For each quarter reported, the majority of citations were issued to non-Hispanic individuals.
• A review of our current policy SOP 960 (Biased-Based Profiling) and Biased- Based Profiling brochure was conducted. Both the policy and the brochure appear to represent a consistent approach with regards to our current practices. There were also no notable needs for revisions.
• During the year, 2020 there were 20 complaints received by the Office of Professional Compliance. Of these 20, there were no complaints that were identified as being biased-based in nature.
Please consider this memorandum is an administrative review of the Cocoa Police Departments practices involving biased based profiling.
