Message from the Chief of Police Regarding Immigrant Concerns About Seeking Police Assistance 
I have been hearing concerns from members of Aurora’s diverse immigrant community on the subject of immigration enforcement. Many members of that community have fears of reaching out to the police and other emergency services in a time of need because of their documentation status. I want to reassure members of those communities that if they find themselves in a situation where they need help that they should not be afraid to call 911. Our policy remains the same…officers will not enforce, investigate, or detain individuals based solely on their immigration status.

Our policy is not based on politics or personal philosophy. It is based on public safety. It is our goal to ensure that all individuals within Aurora feel safe in reporting emergencies and working closely with the APD to ensure our city remains a safe place for all.
