The Somali American Police Association (SAPA) understands and believes in the importance of collaborative partnership(s) with our community. Over the past few years we have hosted round table community meetings at multiple cities here in Minnesota. We are working hard to bridge the gap between law enforcement and the East African Community. It is our priority that we prove a strong and powerful voice for our community. SAPA is always finding new ways to engage the community and partner(with) criminal justice agencies to better the safety of all. We value the voices of our partners, provide spaces for them to be heard, and strive to promote their voices and messages at every available opportunity.
