  Update on Richmond Police Investigation
July 8, 2016

Dear City Manager Bill Lindsay, Mayor Butt and City Councilmembers,

Our misconduct investigation is active and ongoing.  Yesterday afternoon, one of the subject officers, Jerrod Tong was placed on paid administrative leave pending the outcome of fact gathering focused on his conduct.  We prefer not to have this investigation led by the news media, however, we will be confirming this development with the media outlets that inquire.  We will not comment further.

We understand the heightened anxiety that many are experiencing and we're working hard to move things along as quickly as we can.  I will keep you updated with any new developments.

Chief Brown
