Profiling by Law Enforcement
In Oregon it is illegal for a law enforcement agency or officer to target an individual based solely on their age, race, ethnicity, color, national origin, language, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, political affiliation, religious affiliation, houselessness, mental disability, or physical disability.
