The Shelburne Fair and Impartial Policing Team, a group of community members who say they are concerned about the town’s fair and impartial policing policy, will host a virtual informational meeting in partnership with Migrant Justice next week.

From 7-8 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 25 the groups will talk about loopholes they say allow local police to collaborate with federal immigration agencies.

“Shelburne should be a place where everyone feels safe. Migrant workers, many filling essential jobs in Vermont’s dairy industry, cannot feel safe when town policy allows Shelburne Police to actively work with federal immigration enforcement agencies. When any group feels unsafe going to the police, we are all less safe,” according to a press release.
