As the City Manager stated at the Council meeting on June 9, the community will receive a full and transparent accounting of the recent events in the City of Fredericksburg. The Police Department is currently performing a formal and intensive review of how the agency responded to protests/demonstrations held between May 31st and June 8th, 2020. The review will be complete this summer and, upon its completion, shared with the Department’s Citizen Advisory Panel, a group created in 2015 to facilitate two-way communication between the Fredericksburg Police Department and members of our community, and then made public.
The City of Fredericksburg has received numerous questions, comments, demands, and concerns (and compliments) during this time. However, we are unable to provide further information until this review and reporting is complete. Having said that, we believe it is important to generally share some basic information about our Police Department.
Our Fredericksburg Police Department has made good progress with community policing, accountability, and transparency. We are certain with recent events locally, and with this pressing and very important national conversation, that there is more to be done. We are committed to continued improvement in all that we do, especially in our core responsibility to public safety.
