Bias-based Profliing by Law Enforcement occurs when police or peace officers target you for arrest or other criminal law enforcement action, not because of specific information linking you to unlawful activity, but instead because of your protected status under the Law - such as your race, national origin, color, religion, age, alienage or citizenship status, gender, gender identity, sexual orientations, disability, or housing status.
Report any bias-based harassment incidents to the NYC Commission on Human Rights.
Everyone who lives in or visits New York City has the right to do so safely and free from discrimination and bias-based harassment.
