DOJ Releases SB 54 Compliance Bulletin

By Shaun Rundle, Deputy Director.

Last week the CA Department of Justice released a bulletin to all of law enforcement regarding expected compliance with SB 54, the media-dubbed “sanctuary state” measure.

Since the announcement by United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions at CPOA’s Law Enforcement Legislative Day event last month, questions about federal vs. state jurisdiction have come into play. Many local agencies are unsure of which provisions of SB they can and cannot enforce.

The bulletin released by DOJ is intended to provide some guidance to law enforcement agencies on the various categories of SB 54.
