‘State of Emergency’ Declared By Louisville Police Department Due To Forthcoming Breonna Taylor Decision


On Monday, the Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) canceled all off days and vacation requests until further notice as the agency prepares for Attorney General Daniel Cameron’s announcement in the Breonna Taylor case, WDRB reported.

On Facebook, the Louisville Metro Police Department stated, “As part of preparations for the Attorney General’s announcement in the Breonna Taylor case, Louisville Public Works and PARC put up ‘No Parking’ signs along many downtown streets. Although people have removed some of those signs, no parking will be allowed on surface streets from 2nd to 9th Streets and Market to Broadway after the announcement is made. And anyone parking there risks being ticketed or towed when streets are blocked.”

In a memo that was also released, LMPD Interim Chief of Police, Robert Schroeder declares a state of emergency for LMPD and also enacted the following changes.

“To ensure we have the appropriate level of staffing to provide for public safety services and our policing functions, effective immediately the LMPD will operate under the emergency staffing and reporting guidelines as outlined in the Standard Operating Procedures, Emergency Response Plan, and collective bargaining agreements until further notice,” the memo stated.

WDRB also reported that Cameron had not released a timetable for the anticipated announcement. However, the federal courthouse downtown, The Gene Snyder U.S. Courthouse & Customhouse, is closed this week in anticipation of a decision in the case.

Breonna Taylor was a 26-year-old African-American emergency medical technician that was fatally shot by Louisville Metro Police Department (LMPD) officers Jonathan Mattingly, Brett Hankison, and Myles Cosgrove on March 13, 2020.

Multiple protesters, including friends and family of Taylor, protested outside Mayor Fischer’s office on May 26, 2020, and demanded the three officers be arrested and charged with murder.

Will more violence break out? Only time will tell after the announcement.
