[ARCHIVED] Sheriff’s Response to the Death of George Floyd

Flagstaff, AZ – As the Sheriff of Coconino County I share in the community’s shock and anger over the events recently occurring in Minneapolis.  I greatly value the diversity and public trust of our citizens and constantly strive to maintain and strengthen our relationships with all of our communities.

I am outraged, as many of you are, by the actions of a few officers and will not tolerate similar behavior by anyone in my agency.

I understand and support the Constitutional rights of individuals to peaceably assemble and lawfully protest.  However, I do not condone violence or unlawful activities.

My commitment to you is to maintain integrity, transparency and professionalism in fulfilling the duties of my sworn Oath of Office to protect and serve the citizens of Coconino County.
