It is the policy of the Richardson Police Department that all arrests, investigative stops, motor vehicle stops, pedestrian stops, searches, and seizures performed by officers of the Department are a result of facts and circumstances which can be articulated to support a reasonable suspicion or probable cause as required by state and federal law. Police Officers are prohibited from stopping, detaining or searching any person or taking enforcement action when the officer's actions are solely bias motivated by consideration of the person's race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, gender, sexual orientation, economic status, age, cultural group, or any other identifiable group.
