Statement from Mayor Noam Bramson
"The City will continue to cooperate fully with County and State officials to ensure a thorough, open, and transparent investigation. But our challenge extends further. This tragic event, which would be traumatic under any circumstances, comes at a moment of intense local and national focus on issues of police violence and systemic racism. All of us are called to work together, alongside community leaders and advocates, to pursue the broader cause of racial justice and peace in New Rochelle. That work has already begun and now it will be pursued with even greater urgency."
