As the Police Chief of the Oakland Police Department, I want to assure our community that our mission is to serve and protect every resident in Oakland, and prevent anyone from being a victim of crime in our city. The Oakland Police Department does not enforce federal immigration laws, nor do we collect information regarding a person's immigration status. Our primary goal is to keep our city safe and to protect and serve all Oaklanders, regardless of their immigration status...(see press release for full letter).
