In Partnership With Our Community

Chief Matt RokusMessage From Chief Matt Rokus

The death of George Floyd in Minneapolis has reverberated across the nation. Like most in our community, we watched in horror as George Floyd lost his life due to the actions, and inactions, of several police officers. What we saw embodied callousness and a lack of value for human life and human dignity. The actions and tactics displayed by these officers do not represent our values in the Eau Claire Police Department, nor our duty to protect everyone.

These events cause many to question whether pillars of our society, such as police and the justice system, keep them safe. Many community members have reached out with questions and concerns about our policies, practices, and oversight. Listed in the "Transparency In Policing" tab below are common concerns, our corresponding policies, practices and oversight.
