The Mayor of Rochester, New York, Lovely Warren, said Tuesday that the city’s Police Department Command Staff had announced its retirement amid days of protests surrounding the death of a Black man in police custody earlier this year.
Speaking during an city councilbriefing held via Zoom, Warren said the resignations included the police chief and two deputy chiefs. “The Chief was not asked to give his resignation,” she said, adding that others may follow suit.
