Message from the City Manager Regarding News of Possible Detentions


Dear Residents,

City Manager, Suzanne Ludlow

Once again we are hearing of residents afraid that they or their loved ones may be detained or deported because they are undocumented. This is an important time to remind our community to not be afraid of interacting with City staff, including members of the Takoma Park Police Department. As a Sanctuary City, we are committed to serving the public good, preserving public safety and being supportive of the members of our community, regardless of place of birth or nationality or any other demographic category.

Our City staff are here to serve and care. We are a City that stands together.
