Wyckoff police chief's email violated profiling policy, prosecutor finds

Wyckoff police chief's email violated profiling policy, prosecutor finds | News 12 New Jersey

Oy Vey!

The police chief wrote in a 2014 email to his department that police should "check out suspicious black people in white neighborhoods" because "black gang members from Teaneck commit burglaries in Wyckoff." Wyckoff is a mostly white suburb, 30 miles west of New York. He said that New York police stop white kids in black neighborhoods there because "they know they are there to buy drugs."

It doesn't say to just check them out if they are black in a white hood or because blacks commit more crimes (Actual racial profiling).
It says to check them out if they are "suspicious" and in a white hood.

And then look. No substantiated instances of racial profiling or that it was encouraged or condoned.

He also said his investigation did not reveal any substantiated instances of racial profiling or find that Wyckoff police either encouraged or condoned racial profiling.
