Daniel Prude protests: Rochester, N.Y. mayor announces internal review into investigation
CA, 15 Sep 2020
Rochester, N.Y. Mayor Lovely Warren on Monday announced the launch of an internal review into the investigation of Daniel Prude's death, as well as the end of the police chief's tenure and suspension of high-ranking city employees.
Warren said the Office of Public Integrity had been instructed to initiate a thorough investigation to see if any city employees, including herself, had violated policies over the handling of Prude's death and civil rights.
"I order this review because my spirit has been spent," she said. "I should have conducted a review and informed the public when it happened."
She also said that Monday was police chief La'Ron Singletary's last day, despite his retirement announcement last week when his last day was originally set to be Sept. 29.
Warren added that Tim Curtin, of City Corporation Counsel, and City of Rochester communications director Justin Roj were suspended without pay for "failure to act, inform and follow policy and procedures."
