US unveils federal law enforcement profiling curbs

FILE - In this Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014, file photo, U. S. Attorney General Eric Holder speaks during a news conference before a roundtable meeting in Cleveland. New racial profiling guidelines are being announced by the Obama administration that would exempt agents from the Homeland Security Department who do border checks and screen passengers at airports. An official said Friday, Dec. 5, 2014, that the new guidelines exempt the Transportation Security Administration in entirety and also do not cover inspections at port of entry and interdictions at border crossings. The official was not authorized to discuss the guidelines by name and spoke on condition of anonymity. Holder had said Monday night that he expected the new guidelines, which apply to federal law enforcement but not local police officers, would be announced in coming days. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak)WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration issued guidelines Monday that restrict the ability of federal law enforcement agencies to profile on the basis of religion, national origin and other characteristics, protocols the Justice Department hopes could be a model for local departments as the nation tackles questions about the role race plays in policing.
