George Floyd police reform legacy emerges as APD demilitarizes, adds social worker response

Mad River Union ARCATA – The  May 25, 2020 killing of George Floyd, 46, in Minneapolis at the hands of Minneapolis Police officers continues to reshape community policing, with APD implementing a range of new reforms.   In response to the June 17, 2020 incident, the City Council directed the Arcata Police Department to initiate

Police Chief Brian Ahearn on the city’s budget, reform and APD

Police Officers are noble people who perform life-saving work every day and restore hope in people’s lives when all hope was lost. So when some advocate for dismantling the police or march on their City Hall to abolish policing (how ludicrous is that?) be careful what you wish for.

APD Chief Ahearn asks officers to step up for human rights

I am asking you APD to step up and answer the call. Be a leader. Set the example.  Do not sit back and watch an unjust application of force take place or tolerate inequality or discriminatory conduct towards a person of color or anyone who is being treated differently because of who they are. Take risk. Do the right thing.  Intervene. Always. There are no exceptions.  Serve with honor  For all people.
