Department of Homeland Security

The Council continues its participation in quarterly meetings between the Department of Homeland Security’s Office for Civil Rights and Civil Liberties (CRCL) and members of the Muslim community. The purpose is to share perspectives and to improve communication with law enforcement in an effort to foster stronger partnerships. The meetings are part of the continuing outreach program aimed at improving the department’s negative image and to combat the stereotypes, mistrust, and misinformation that people hold about the department and other law enforcement. With participation also from the Cook County Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management (DHSEM) and the Chicago Police Department, the meetings are designed to give the Muslim community and law enforcement the opportunity to express their concerns, ask questions, and learn more about each other.
