Statement from Pittsburgh Mayor Ed Gainey Regarding Police Presence During Funeral

PITTSBURGH — Mayor Ed Gainey released the following statement regarding Pittsburgh Bureau of Police presence during funeral:

“The community plays a vital role in our work to build peace in our city, and if we want to be successful then we must have strong police-community relationships. Part of being a strong community partner, and a good neighbor, means that we show up when we say we are going to do so. We can’t expect to win the trust of our communities if we don’t respond to the call. At this time we can’t speak to any potential disciplinary actions while the investigation is underway. But do know we will hold those accountable for their actions.”
