We attended this event as a part of the Civic Engagement Survival Guide: a series of free talks and workshops focused on creating a community that is informed, organized, and engaged.
Chief Brixby of the Culver City Police Department held a community forum tonight and spoke on CCPD’s role in immigration enforcement. Chief Brixby takes the time to answer community questions, and addresses the “ACLU’s 9 “Model” State and Local Law Enforcement Policies and Rules.”
“I hear you saying that immigration law enforcement is not the primary, secondary, or tertiary function of the Culver City Police Department.
I hear you saying that sanctuary status, from what you understand […] would not prevent the CCPD from enforcing the law here in Culver City.
I hear you saying that you are already in compliance with the ACLU 9 Model Principles. Is that correct?”

“That is correct.” – Culver City Police Chief Bixby
