A message from Chief David E. Currey of sadness, commitment, and appreciation to our Vero Beach Community
The shocking, senseless death of George Floyd, and the disregard for human life and dignity at the hands of law enforcement is truly heartbreaking. Our thoughts and prayers are extended to the Floyd family, relatives, and friends.
The Vero Beach Police Department has been, and will continue to be committed toward our community by way of partnerships, citizen interaction, trust, transparency, and accountability. We understand the importance of this commitment as we too are a part of OUR wonderful community.
Please know we understand there are concerns and frustrations. Together we can set an example for other communities to follow. Gatherings to voice a message can be done in a respectful, peaceful manner, and without violence or destruction. The latter only distracts and takes away from the intended point of focus. In fact, let us know of any event so we can attend and/or provide a safe environment.
We can all live by the Golden Rule…..treating others as you want to be treated in a fair and equitable way! God bless, and thank you Vero Beach!!
