Lawmakers in Salem took up a bill yesterday that would require the state to set up a method for recording profiling complaints against law enforcement agencies.

According to the Center for Intercultural Organizing, Oregon is among just eight states that don't ban profiling.

According to the nonprofit, Oregon also has no way for people to document or report cases. Rather, the state leaves issues of profiling up to individual law enforcement agencies.
