What do I do if I feel like the police have targeted me because of my appearance?

I wasn't doing anything wrong and I was stopped by the police. Being in this situation makes me very nervous.


In the moment, be certain to remain calm and relaxed, and comply with any directives. After the situation has concluded, you should call or visit the police department and ask to speak to a supervisor about potential profiling.

If you feel that you have still not received fair treatment and wish to further pursue justice, you can contact a licensed attorney.
