Comal County Commissioners will review an incomplete report on racial profiling by law enforcement and celebrate the county’s latest award for financial reporting excellence during their weekly meeting Thursday.

Each law enforcement agency and the state’s 254 counties are required annually to submit racial profiling data from traffic stops with the Texas Commission on Law Enforcement. The data records the gender and racial profile of the person stopped, along with whether they were detained and other information related to the stop. Since it became law more than 20 years ago, minority rights organizations have criticized inaccuracies and incomplete data in many reports, and failed to enforce its authority over data collections in recent years.
