[ARCHIVED] Statement from SHPD Chief Christopher M. Nunley

Statement from Signal Hill Police Chief Christopher M. Nunley

Signal Hill Police Department Chief Christopher M. Nunley recently released a statement regarding the tragic death of George Floyd and recent events:

"As Chief of Police, I, like many of you, was shocked and disturbed when I saw the video of the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis last month. The actions, and inactions of the officers involved, and the lack of compassion on display, tarnishes the badge of police officers nationwide, and is completely inconsistent with our training and the oath we all take when assuming our positions. While I believe that Law Enforcement in Southern California has made many positive changes during my career, this tragedy is a stark reminder that there is much work left to be done.

The Signal Hill Police Department is committed to the philosophy of community-oriented policing and partnering with our citizens in order to provide a safer environment for all. It is with that mindset that I am looking forward to working with our community and our City Council as we consider the path forward for law enforcement within the City of Signal Hill."
