A Word from the Police Chief *updated 6/2

6/2 Addition: This morning I had the opportunity to speak to one of the organizers of today’s gathering in Marin City and I am clear their goal is to peacefully raise awareness about racism and social injustices that exist in our country and in our county. I would like to communicate unequivocally we stand in support with the Marin City Community and condemn the recent actions of the police officers in Minneapolis.

Yesterday, I authored a message to address my concerns about the possibility of violence propagated by individuals from outside Marin County who may be seeking to take advantage of the many peaceful demonstrations organized in response to the tragic and criminal misconduct of a police officer in Minneapolis. My statement yesterday was construed by many people as offensive and racist. I realize I am a leader in this community and my words have power. The Tiburon Police Department does not want to defame the reputation of, or contribute to a negative narrative about our neighbors in Marin City.  It is apparent today I should have found other words to express my concern. To those I have offended, I offer my sincere apologies. 

Michael Cronin
Chief of Police
Town of Tiburon

6/1 Original

Tomorrow afternoon (June 2), there is a protest scheduled in Marin City. Over the past two days, there have been several peaceful demonstrations in Marin communities with none of the aftermath we are witnessing in larger metropolitan areas. However, this planned protest is much closer to our community. 

In addition, we are aware of social media postings encouraging participants to shift their attention to more affluent communities, with a specific mention of Walnut Creek, Danville, Sausalito, and Tiburon. These posts were clearly not written by individuals interested in peaceful protest, and a common tactic that has been repeated in many demonstrations is attempting to block freeways. This can escalate into attacks of vehicles and their occupants. As a result, we are recommending that if possible, you refrain from travel on US-101 south of Tiburon Boulevard tomorrow afternoon and evening. 

In response, Tiburon Police has substantially increased our staffing, and we will remain at this elevated staffing level as long as is needed.
