Statement from Mayor Andrew J. Ginther Regarding Body Worn Camera Footage

Mayor Andrew J. Ginther has issued the following statement regarding body-worn camera footage from the Andre Hill shooting released:

“Like most who have watched the additional body-worn camera footage from the shooting of Andre Hill and the time following, I am horrified by the time that passed before any officer provided aid to Mr. Hill. Our officers are trained to provide potentially life-saving care, and at the very least, comfort in these situations. One of the Division of Police’s core values is compassion. None of this was evident in the video released today. I have directed Chief Quinlan to investigate the events of Dec. 22 completely and thoroughly, and to hold all officers who failed to uphold Division standards accountable. This video is also being shared with BCI who continues to conduct the criminal investigation into the shooting death of Mr. Hill. The family and the community deserves answers.”
