To Our Somerville Community:

Somerville Police Officers have dedicated themselves to transparent, compassionate, procedurally just community policing.  As a member of the world community and a human being I was devastated to see the brutality inflicted by a police officer on another human being and member of our shared world community, George Floyd. 

As a Department we grieve with our community as we process this unnecessary and tragic loss of life.  I look forward to productive conversation with our community and conversation with police leaders throughout the country on how we prevent this from ever happening again.
