Onalaska Chief Not Sweating Racial Profiling Mandates
At some point, the state of Wisconsin is going to figure out exactly what it wants to learn from police agencies. Until then, police departments will have to wait and see what's expected under mandates to keep track of potential racial profiling. Onalaska police chief Jeffrey Trotnic says he's not overly concerned about the mandates. As a cop in Missouri for several years, Trotnic says he already had experience in collecting data to track racial profiling and, he says, it actually can be useful information that's gathered. Area police agencies already have the equipment and training in place to record things like race, gender or whether a search is done during a traffic stop.
