In 2021, the Board of Supervisors adopted the Public Trust and Confidentiality Policy (Trust Policy) to reaffirm current county policy and improve community health, welfare, safety, security and trust by ensuring that immigrant residents can access county benefits and services without fear that the information they share will be disclosed to federal immigration officials.
The Trust Policy makes that promise concrete by establishing mandatory countywide standards for information sharing and other protections for our immigrant neighbors. We will do everything we can to help people get the services and access to their county government they need. The Trust Policy further ensures that the County is not a source of personal information that those outside the County can exploit for their own purposes.
