A fundamental right guaranteed by the Constitution of the United States is equal protection under the law. Along with this right to equal protection is the fundamental right to be free from unreasonable searches and seizures by government agents as guaranteed by the Fourth Amendment. People are free to walk and drive our streets, highways, and other public places without police interference so long as they obey the law. They also are entitled to be free from crime, and from the acts of criminals, and to drive and walk our public ways safe from the actions of reckless and careless drivers.
This law enforcement agency is charged with protecting these rights, and including for all, regardless of race, color, ethnicity, background, gender, national origin, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, economic status, age, culture, physical handicap, immigration status, housing status, occupation, language fluency, religion or other belief system, or any physical or personal characteristic.
