Mayor Ginther Responds to Police-Involved Incident

Mayor Andrew J. Ginther released the following statement regarding a police-involved incident:

“I was disturbed and upset when I saw the video taken on Saturday. The behavior we saw in the video was unacceptable and inconsistent with our values as a community. It erodes the trust the residents of this city place in law enforcement. 

Officer Rosen has been reassigned to nonpatrol duty indefinitely. I applaud Chief Jacobs for her swift action, and put the full resources of the city behind the investigation. We must remain vigilant in being transparent and accountable in order to earn and keep the trust of the public.”
