Statement of Hingham Police Chief Glenn Olsson Regarding the Death of George Floyd

Statement of Hingham Police Chief Glenn Olsson Regarding the Death of George Floyd:

Chief Glenn Olsson and the men and women of the Hingham Police Department, along with the Massachusetts Chiefs of Police Association, the International Association of Chiefs of Police, and forces across the country, condemn the actions of the four Minneapolis police officers that resulted in the senseless and tragic death of George Floyd. 

As Officers we also share the feelings of the everyday person. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Floyd family.  We are all shocked and upset by the actions of the Minneapolis police officers. Those actions are in direct conflict with the rules, values, and training Hingham Police Officers live by. We cannot allow actions like this to go unpunished. 

The Hingham Police Department’s mission is to protect the safety of our community.  We remain committed to doing so without prejudice or the use of unnecessary force.  We stand in solidarity with the citizens of Hingham and will continue to work with the community as partners and treat all citizens with dignity and respect.
