should deal with racial profiling.
   (4) The working men and women in California law enforcement risk

protecting public safety. The good name of these officers should not
be tarnished by the actions of those few who commit discriminatory
practices.

shall be required to complete a refresher course every five years
thereafter, or on a more frequent basis if deemed necessary, in order
to keep current with changing racial and cultural trends.
   (j) The Legislative Analyst shall conduct a study of the data
being voluntarily collected by those jurisdictions that have
instituted a program of data collection with regard to racial
profiling, including, but not limited to, the California Highway
Patrol, the City of San Jose, and the City of San Diego, both to
ascertain the incidence of racial profiling and whether data
collection serves to address and prevent such practices, as well as
to assess the value and efficacy of the training herein prescribed

may prescribe the manner in which the data is to be submitted and may
request that police agencies collecting such data submit it in the
requested manner. The Legislative Analyst shall provide to the
Legislature a report and recommendations with regard to racial
profiling by July 1, 2002.
