|Minorities In Law Enforcement is a culturally
diverse, non-profit coalition of law enforcement professionals
working in concert with elected officials and the private sector
to give at-risk urban youth better alternatives to crime, violence,
gangs and drugs.
Membership in MILE is not restricted to law enforcement officers. All
Founded in 1993, MILE embraces a balanced “protect and
prevent” public safety strategy:
- Protect the innocent by getting violent felons, sex offenders
and career criminals off the street.
- Prevent at-risk youth from turning to crime with community-based
prevention and intervention programs aimed at ending child
abuse and neglect, drug use, gangs, unemployment and violence.
To improve the safety, economic security, health and education
of California’s children, MILE works with state and local
law enforcement, policy makers, and state and national advocacy
groups, including the California Children’s Advocate Roundtable,
National Building Blocks for Youth Coalition, California Council
on Child Abuse and Neglect, Parent Teacher Association, crime
victims groups and the National Children’s Defense Fund.
MILE’s “Minority Law Enforcement Roundtable” works
to develop and implement prevention and intervention programs
specifically designed for at-risk urban youth, and is composed
of elected officials, local leaders, community organizations
and members of law enforcement agencies throughout California.
In addition, MILE is committed to political action at every
level of government, mobilizing support for public safety candidates,
policies and ballot initiatives.
We’re going the extra MILE to provide urban youth with
positive alternatives to a life of crime. Please join us in this
