Previous Message from Suisun City Police Chief Aaron Roth to the Suisun City Community:

May 13, 2020

I was very disappointed to learn about the actions of one of our officers during an interaction with a resident over the weekend. The incident and the officer’s behavior are not indicative of the values of this organization, nor are they a reflection of the hard work of the women and men of this department. We have worked hard over the years to show our community we value them and want to partner with them. Our partnership with the community is vital to the work we do.

This is an unfortunate incident that we will use as a learning opportunity to do better as we continue to work with our community to make Suisun City a better place for everyone. On behalf of the Suisun City Police Department, I would like to publicly apologize to the residents involved in this incident and to the entire community.

Sincerely,
Chief Aaron Roth

Over the weekend one of our Suisun City Police Officers was involved in an unfortunate interaction with a resident while responding to a call for service.

During that incident, the officer involved used language that was not appropriate and not within the standards of the Suisun City Police Department.

The City of Suisun City and the Suisun City Police Department want to assure our residents that this type of behavior is not tolerated by any measure.
