Police and Immigration Conference at UNO to Feature International Relations Unit
Omaha - The International Relations Unit of the Charlotte-Mecklenburg, N.C., Police Department will be featured speakers at the University of Nebraska at Omaha (UNO) Law Enforcement and the New Immigration Conference on Friday, April 7.
Two officers from the International Relations Unit will give a presentation on their Communication, Partnerships, Outreach and Problem-Solving initiatives. The unit consists of one sergeant and six sworn officers. Members of the group have previously been invited to give presentations in Spain and several U.S. cities.
Sam Walker, coordinator of the UNO Police Professionalism Initiative (PPI), co-sponsor of the conference and an emeritus professor in UNO's Department of Criminal Justice, said the Charlotte International Relations Unit is one of the most creative and important new programs in this area of law enforcement. The event's other sponsor is UNO's Office or Latino/Latin American Studies (OLLAS)
"One important feature of the Charlotte International Relations Unit is that it serves all international groups in the local community and does not focus on just one group," Walker said. The Charlotte metropolitan area consists of significant Hispanic, Hmong, Vietnamese and Indian communities.
The day-long conference will be held at the Doubletree Hotel, 16th and Dodge Streets in Omaha. The public is welcome to attend, although space is limited and anyone who would like to attend is encouraged to register as soon as possible. Registration forms can be obtained by phone at either (402) 554-3590 or (402) 554-3835 or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Lunch will be provided to participants who register in advance.
