Statement regarding the Death of Mr. George Floyd

The White Plains Department of Public Safety would like to express our deepest sympathy to the family of Mr. George Floyd.

While the world mourns over this tragedy and law enforcement agencies around the nation are once again facing extreme public scrutiny, we would like to assure all of the people that we serve in White Plains that we are constantly striving to strengthen the relationships with our community. The White Plains Police Department evaluates these tragic incidents and applies it to our training, in hope that incidents like these don’t happen here, and we may better protect our community.

We believe this because of our strong commitment to our hiring selection process, recruit field training program, annual evaluation process, annual training program, and commitment to community policing ideals.

Although we are proud of our past efforts in all of these areas we are always striving to do better, increase our partnerships within the community and make this city safer for all.

Again, our sincerest condolences to the family and friends of Mr. Floyd.
