Iowa CCI Rolls Out Policy To Help End Racial Profiling

DES MOINES, Iowa--  Thursday, Iowa Citizens for Community Improvement met with Des Moines city leaders, and members of the community.

The goal was talk about a policy that would help combat racial profiling.

Advocates fought but failed to pass anti racial profiling laws this past legislative session.

Iowa CCI remains hopeful change can happen on a local level, but they need the help of Des Moines City Council.

The new policy suggestions would include:

"An ordinance that would ban racial profiling, stop perpetual stops, mandates data collection and transparency from Des Moines Police,” Sharon Zanders-Atkiss with Iowa CCI said.

Next, Iowa CCI plans to present their suggestions to the entire city council, a date for that has not been set.
