According to CBS SF BAY AREA, the governor of California, Jerry Brown last week, signed legislation, changing the definition of racial profiling, in the state.

This will require local police departments to collect demographic on the people they stop.

Over half a dozen states have passed similar legislation, since the shooting and killing of Michael Brown, by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson last year.

People who support the legislation, say the $9 million annual cost of the program, could help save police departments millions more in expensive settlements, when people are unlawfully killed by law enforcement officers.
