Mayor issues statement on Lovett indictment

Posted: Updated:

Mayor Edna Jackson issued the following statement today concerning the indictment of former police chief Willie Lovett by the U.S. Attorney:

We have been informed of the indictment of our former police chief, Willie Lovett. This matter is being handled by the U.S. Attorney, and as such it would be inappropriate for me to offer comment. However, I do want to acknowledge the improvements implemented within the Police Department since last year.

Our City Manager and City Attorney have led a broad process that has resulted in overdue change. We are now focused on the future of the Department, including the selection of a new Chief and implementation of new programs to bring a higher level of professionalism to the department. They deserve your support moving forward.
