-Look for people who are actually breaking the law rather racial groups,
3. Cultural sensitivity training for all police officers

Research shows that the studies of racial profiling recommend organizational initiatives such as having an explicit policy of not permitting racial profiling, training and educating officers on the impact of racial profiling, and keeping and monitoring data on such decisions to deal with the problem. In our research, we conducted a survey that was based on this question: do Latinos experience racial profiling by Police Officers in San Mateo? Police officers take oath to serve and protect and serve the community, but statistical data shows police officers racially profile citizens nationwide. We chose this issue because we wanted to know if this issue is happening in San Mateo community and is Racial Profiling affecting Latinos in San Mateo County. Based on surveys handed out throughout San Mateo, Foster City, Half Moon Bay, in shopping centers, schools, and workplaces racial profiling is viewed positively. This surveys indicate the main cause of racial profiling. This essay will explore the various ways racial profiling is viewed in the San Mateo County and provide solutions so that Latinos know when they are being racially profiled.
