Racial Profiling Report, 2003


This report contains data collected in 2003 from traffic citations issued by the Sweeny Police Department in Sweeny, Texas. Because of the qualified exemption under Texas Code of Criminal Procedure, Article 2.135, only the following data shall be reported:

  • Total number of citations issued by Sweeny Police Officers,
  • Percent of total citations by ethnic category,
  • Total number of consent searches,
  • Total number of non-consent searches, and
  • Total number of arrests resulting from traffic stops.

2003 represents the second year for which racial profiling data was required to be collected by Texas law enforcement agencies and subsequently reported to local councils of government. However, the data collection requirements were quite different this year than for last year based on the exemption cited above.

Internal Review

The internal analysis of data was compiled for future use or dissemination, but the data was exempt from this report based on the exemption cited above.

No complaints of racial profiling were lodged against officers in 2003.
