Established in 1994 in the wake of a string of hate-related fire bombings throughout Sacramento, the Greater Sacramento Area Task Force on Hate Crimes consists of federal, state, and local law enforcement agencies and community organizations dedicated to preventing and combating hate crimes. The Task Force is sponsored and administered by the United States Attorney’s Office. It is co-chaired by Dr. Dorothy Enomoto and United States Marshal Jerry Enomoto (ret’d) and is comprised of over 40 agencies and organizations, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation, the ATF, the Sacramento County District Attorney’s Office, the Sacramento Sheriff’s Department, Sacramento Human Rights Fair Housing Commission, the NAACP, the Anti-Defamation League, and California State University, Sacramento, to name but a few.
The Task Force meets three to four times per year at the U.S. Attorney’s Office. At these meetings, participants make presentations, exchange information, report on ongoing initiatives and issues relating to hate crime reporting, investigation and prosecution, and report on cooperation between law enforcement and the community. The Task Force also co-sponsors a number of hate crimes conferences and workshops in Sacramento and other cities throughout the region.
