THIS DOES NOT HELP!
The Lancaster City Bureau of Police welcomes three new officers. Officers Austin Krause, Christopher Kophamel, and Timothy Sinnott were sworn in by Mayor Richard Gray during a ceremony at City Hall earlier today.
Posted today on the Lancaster Police website (click here). The officer’s pictures above from left to right are in the above named order.
Just as I was about to announce the results of my Right-To-Know request to the City for the racial and ethnic breakdown of the members of the Lancaster City Police force, Mayor Gray swore in these three new officers today. This is not helping! This is not helping one bit with the outrageous disparity between the make-up of the community and the officers who serve it.
I will have the shameful, updated figures tomorrow. Apparently, city business administrator Patrick Hopkins thought it would be fun to make this as difficult as possible for me! Details tomorrow.
