Lake Oswego Police Statement on the Death of George Floyd

Posted Thu, 06/04/2020 - 4:18pm

LAKE OSWEGO - The actions and tactics demonstrated by the officers responsible for the death of George Floyd were wrong. Those actions do not reflect the training or values of our Police Department and I am saddened by the unnecessary loss of life.

I stand by the statement made by the Oregon Association of Chiefs of Police condemning these actions. We have been working hard to ensure our department helps create a safe, welcoming, and inclusive community for residents and visitors alike.

Dale Jorgensen, Chief of Police
