A Message from Chief Lantz about George Floyd
5/30/2020

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. The geographic policing model that we use in Albemarle County positions our officers to get to know the people in our community, by covering the same areas and encouraging them to have positive interactions with the people of Albemarle. I’m proud of the work that has been done with our Citizen Advisory Council and in community events and partnership programs over the past several years to build trusting relationships with the people we serve.

 
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.
