UCI Police Department

UCI Community,

The UCI Police Department is outraged and grief-stricken with the events that took place surrounding the tragic death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. We want you to know that what we saw is unacceptable. There simply exists no righteous explanation for such demonstrated callous indifference and disregard for the life of a person of color. The actions of those officers violate what we stand for, the oath we all swear to uphold and the public trust of the communities we vow to protect and serve regardless of race.

We demand better from our officers. The UCI community expects and deserves competence, respect, and creative problem-solving delivered with care and compassion. We work hard in partnership with the campus community to provide the tools and training our officers need to keep our campus safe and ensure our officers treat everyone with dignity and respect. We stand with our UCI community against these injustices.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family and friends of George Floyd.
