A MESSAGE FROM NAPA COUNTY LAW ENFORCEMENT

To our Beloved Napa Community:

On behalf of the nearly 400 men and women who make up the staff of the Napa Police Department, the Napa County Sheriff’s Office and the Napa County District Attorney’s Office, we offer our kindest and most sincere condolences to the family and loved ones of Mr. George Floyd. We stand in solidarity with the communities across the nation so profoundly mourning and suffering from wounds, generations in the making.

There is nothing more central to the principles of Napa law enforcement than the dignity of human life and the refusal to allow brutality and inequity besmirch our efforts to serve our beautiful and diverse community.

Napa Police Chief Robert Plummer, Napa County Sheriff John Robertson and Napa County District Attorney Allison Haley wholeheartedly condemn racism, bigotry, and abject cruelty no matter where it exists, by any perpetrator, in any uniform. We have the profound duty and responsibility to dismantle generations of inequity and continue to build systems of justice that represent a better way forward.

We are dedicated and committed to serving our community. We greatly appreciate your support.

 


A MESSAGE FROM THE NAPA CITY POLICE DEPARTMENT

Our community and our country are facing challenging times. Our identity as a nation is being tested. Mayor Jill Techel and the Napa City Council feel your heartache and anger. We condemn the killing of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis Police Department officers and we extend our heartfelt condolences to Mr. Floyd’s family.

We need to do better. True healing begins with listening and empathy and we support your right to free speech and expression. Napa has faced adversity many times. During those difficult times, we have found strength and reconciliation in each other. Our small, but tight-knit community can overcome anything when we do it together. A productive and safe environment is the best platform for true and lasting change.

Police Chief Robert Plummer will be addressing City Council on Tuesday, June 2, regarding Mr. Floyd’s death and provide his perspective and thoughts on how our city can move forward together.
