SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Attorneys general from five U.S. states have formally invited their Mexican counterparts to participate for the first time in the annual gathering of the top law enforcement officials in the western United States, part of an intensifying effort to combat cross-border gangs.

California Attorney General Kamala Harris told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the Mexican officials were asked to attend the Conference of Western Attorneys General meeting July 20-23 in Park City, Utah.

She says the goal is to help law enforcement officials from both countries combat international criminal organizations' growing sophistication in using technology.

Harris and attorneys general from Colorado, Florida, Nevada and New Mexico met with Mexican state and federal prosecutors and bank regulators during a trip to Mexico this week organized by Harris.
