The goal of the Fayetteville Police Department is to reach out to as many members of the community as possible and collectively address the recent allegations of racial profiling. Staff, officers and police commanders recognize that the issue of racial profiling and/or racial bias is a serious community concern and feel that the issue needs to be addressed in manner that will benefit the entire community. The seminars being offered by the Department of Justice are a step in the right direction to ensure the concerns of all stakeholders are heard and addressed.
