Legislation Would Formalize Police Approach to Civil Immigration Law

Rockville’s Mayor and Council will on June 19 consider adopting “Fostering Community Trust,” an ordinance that would amend and add a section to Chapter 11 of the City of Rockville’s “Human Rights” code.

The ordinance restricts all City of Rockville employees – including police officers – from requesting citizenship or immigration status of any person unless required by law. Presently, the Rockville City Police Department (RCPD) does not have a formal, written policy that governs how officers interact with members of the community relevant to federal immigration law. The RCPD follows policies and guidelines established by the Montgomery County Police Department (MCPD), as well as all state and federal laws.
