The Bias Incident
Unit is responsible for the special investigation of bias incidents.
bias incidents are so unique and require such delicate handling
because they attack the racial, religious and ethic heritage of
our citizens. An offense is bias-related if its motive is based
upon race, color, religion, sexual orientation or ethnicity. Bias
incidents undermine our culture, values and principles of democracy.
Any suspected or confirmed bias incident is very serious in that
a seemingly minor incident can very easily escalate into a larger
public safety concern.
