“The Manchester Police Department has adopted a bias-free policing policy stating that no personal demographic should be considered when officers develop reasonable suspicion or probable cause.”
“In short, the policy directs members of the department to not consider race, ethnicity or any other personal criteria when looking to establish reasonable suspicion or probable cause. Other criteria that should not be considered are: immigration status, national origin, color, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, mental or physical disability, religion and socio-economic status.
‘No one should become the suspect of an investigation because of any of those things,’ Baker said. ‘None of that stuff should be the basis in any police department for suspicion.’”
