The Police Executive Research Forum (PERF) Report - Released 2/16/2012

PERF has released a new report that explores the issue of illegal immigration from the perspective of local police and sheriffs' departments across the country.   

The report, Voices from Across the Country: Local Law Enforcement Officials Discuss the Challenges of Immigration Enforcement, is based on regional meetings of police executives and other officials held in Raleigh, NC; Colorado Springs; and Laredo, TX. In addition, PERF convened a meeting at the Prince William County, VA Police Department to hear officials from that department describe their experience in implementing a new immigration policy.

The report, which PERF produced with support from Carnegie Corporation of New York, is available here
