The murder of George Floyd at the hands of members of the Minneapolis Police Department is horrifying. His death is one of many examples of the injustices Black Americans face every day. We share in the grief and outrage of this senseless loss. We stand in support of our Black community members who have been on our minds and in our hearts.
We will do the work needed to help create change to bring about a world free of racial injustice. We see these injustices; we see you. We stand with you in solidarity to speak out and take action against these atrocities. We know as a department that we still have work we need to do to be truly diverse, equitable, and inclusive. This is the community that we strive to model and be. We continue our commitment by doing this work each and every day.
We steadfastly denounce all forms of racism, white supremacy, colonialism, and injustice. We stand with those working to demand justice, accountability, and reparations. We stand against police brutality.
