Mayor Ellen Kamei: “Today, May 25, marks the one-year anniversary of George Floyd’s death. We remember his life and remain committed to rooting out racism and discrimination. We continue to work together as a community to make our city safe and welcoming for all. Over the last year, the City has taken steps to advance racial equity and justice in Mountain View. Our Ad-Hoc Council Subcommittee on Race, Equity and Inclusion has engaged the community in meaningful dialogue. The City has implemented a Race, Equity and Inclusion Action Plan, and the newly formed Public Safety Advisory Board is holding its first meeting this month to discuss and make recommendations on policing and public safety matters. The City of Mountain View stands in solidarity with our Black residents and communities of color. We will continue to take steps to build a community where every individual feels safe, valued and included.”

Police Chief Chris Hsiung: “Over the last year, we have listened intently to our community with regards to questions and concerns they have had with policing across this country. We believe in continuing to listen with an open heart and an open mind, and we are grateful for the many conversations and dialogue we’ve had, and will continue to have, to build out the best possible path forward not just for MVPD, but for the profession. We strive to be what you want and need every day, and we will continue to work to meet that for this community that we love to protect and serve.”
