Police Chief Kitsmiller Issues Statement in Response to the Death of George Floyd in Minneapolis
"The video images of the arrest of George Floyd are unbearable and the actions taken, and not taken, by the officers were wrong. The Marion Police Department has worked tirelessly for years to earn and maintain an exemplary level of trust with the community and reprehensible acts, such as those which occurred in Minneapolis, reflect negatively on everyone in our profession. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Floyd family and we urge the public to continue to peacefully hold us, as a profession, accountable for our actions because we truly do want to serve the entire community."
~Mike Kitsmiller, Marion Chief of Police
