La policía dice, 'Reporte crimen aunque sea indocumentado'

PARAGOULD, AR (KAIT) –  Oficiales de departamentos de policía locales quieren que hispanos que han sido victimas de un crimen lo reporten.

Un estudio dice que casi 97% de hispanos en Arkansas nunca han reportado un crimen que han visto.

La policía de Paragould son unos de los oficiales locales que le preguntan a la comunidad hispana que reporten un crimen aunque sean indocumentados.

Brad Snyder es un oficial en Paragould y le conto a Noticias De Región 8 que el estatus de inmigración no es la prioridad cuando ellos envestigan el crimen.

"Basicamente nuestro punto de vista es que queremos protejer a la gente," dice el oficial Snyder. "Estamos aqui para cuidar a la gente por si estan en problemas por que eso es nuestro trabajo. El estatus no es nuestro interes."

Como la policía local no es federal ellos no tienen ese interes. Solo les interesa su estatus si usted es el delinquente.
