Annotation: This report examines the historical, present, and future impact of Southeast Asians on law enforcement, with focus on experiences in California.
Abstract: A description is provided of Southeast Asian refugee movement and crime problems, including gang activities. A survey of California patrol officers and detectives indicated support for the use of Southeast Asian officers and noted the increased amount of time required for service calls and followup on incidents involving Southeast Asians. A nominal group technique and a survey of experienced investigators in the United States and Canada were used to identify trends and strategies. General crime-suppression strategies include enhanced interagency and intergovernmental information exchange, improved communications with the Southeast Asian community, development of a centralized intelligence collection and dissemination function, increased police-prosecutor coordination in dealing with gang activities, and compilation of separate crime statistics on Southeast Asians. Service strategies include increased law education efforts, enhanced community counseling services, and development of policies for dealing with traffic- and domestic assault-related problems among Southeast Asians. In addition, there should be increased specialization within police departments to deal with the special problems of this population. Implementation of these strategies is discussed. 11 attachments, 22 endnotes, and 37 references.
