The Law Enforcement Immigration Task Force (LEITF) and Police Education Research Foundation (PERF) have released a reportBuilding Trust with Immigrant Communities: Best Practices for Law Enforcement Agencies in Smaller Cities and Towns. The report highlights low-cost, innovative strategies that have proven effective in developing relationships with immigrant communities. The police chiefs and sheriffs interviewed outline the ways they have successfully overcome language barriers, cultural differences and in some cases, mistrust of law enforcement agencies when conducting outreach to their immigrant communities.

I thought the report was very good, especially addressing the challenges encountered by small communities. The local law enforcement officers who contributed to this report are to be commended. The report is consistent with Oregon and California's sanctuary laws. We are one planet.
