El Paso Police finally respond to a study that outlines possible racial profiling in their department. City council unanimously accepted that report in Tuesday’s meeting. The report was conducted by the University of North Texas and shows that African Americans are searched by police more than any other race.

El Paso Police say they're not too concerned about the report. “Based on the number of searches that are consensual versus non-consensual it doesn't give us concern that there's something wrong,” Asst. Chief of Police Michelle Gardner of EPPD told us.

The independent report does claim EPPD is in compliance with state law and has been for many years.
