A Message from Chief Lantz about George Floyd
As so many others across this country, I am appalled by the actions of the officers involved in the death of George Floyd. On behalf of the Albemarle County Police Department, our hearts go out to Mr. Floyd’s family and his community as they grieve. As Chief, I take seriously the responsibility to ensure that our department protects and serves each person in our community. I know this work is continuous, as we hire, train, set performance expectations, and establish citizen-police relations and accountability to ensure our department reflects the community we serve and without bias. The men and women of ACPD have stepped up to the challenge. Our commitment has always and will always be to the people of Albemarle County.
