Painesville Police Department Issues Statement

3 hrs ·
There are many rumors swirling around Painesville right now and I want to clarify what is happening.
• The Painesville Police Department has been notified of a planned, peaceful protest scheduled today at 2:00 p.m. in Painesville Square. The city is NOT on lockdown. We encourage everyone to exercise their constitution right to protest. We are on the scene to ensure the safety of everyone.
• The Painesville Police Department has policies and training in place so what happened in Minnesota does not happen here. We train our officers on the dangers of positional asphyxia. We train our officers to never put knees on the neck. Our policy is to get suspects up as quickly as possible. We never try to force a large or tall person into a vehicle with inadequate room. We call for an SUV or PCFD vehicle to transport. All officers are trained for deadly force situations and we strongly support crisis intervention training for officers.
• PPD also prides itself on having one of the most diverse police department’s in Northeast Ohio, with multiple African American, Hispanic and/or women officers.
• Our officers and administration also takes pride in being strongly connected to the community we serve in. We have a long-standing relationship with the African American community and Hispanic community in the City of Painesville. We are closely connected to all children through the Painesville City Local Schools system and we are often invited to events and services in these communities.
We are always open for discussion and encourage residents to reach out to myself or other members of the department with any concerns they may have. Please be safe and respect the city we call home.
