Chief Phil Hart responds to Trump official’s baseless criticism of Flint PD

A senior Trump official lumped Flint in with Minneapolis while wrongly claiming that the City of Flint is operating under out-of-date, use-of-force policies. Not true, says Police Chief Phil Hart.

“On behalf of all the hardworking men and women in the Flint Police Department, I am outraged at this callous and unnecessary attack on our department. The use of chokeholds is banned throughout the entire state of Michigan and has been for decades,” Chief Hart said. “Don’t make Flint the scapegoat for your policy shortcomings.”

Welcome home, Queen Sharon. One of the first confirmed cases of COVID-19 in Genesee County, Mrs. Sharon Riley Came home this week after 87 days in the hospital. Sadly, she lost both her husband and her brother to the disease while she was in a coma fighting for her life. Mayor Sheldon A. Neeley presented Mrs Riley with a Key to the City on Saturday for her “enduring strength and inspiring spirit.” A parade of family and friends then honored Mrs. Riley with a drive-by salute. Mrs. Riley thanked the community for their constant prayers and asked the community to continue to take coronavirus seriously. Thank you to Hurley Medical Center for saving Mrs. Riley’s life and to McLaren Flint for helping her to recover and return home. ❤️

The City of Flint is asking all residents to be on the lookout for any suspicious activity.

The Flint Police Department is working in conjunction with other local agencies to investigate reports that a group or groups of individuals from outside the City of Flint may be attempting to incite violence or create local disturbances.

This alert to residents is being made as a precautionary measure. There are no known immediate threats to the safety or well-being of the community.

“Our residents are our best defense. You are the eyes and ears of this community. We are asking everyone to be aware of their surroundings and to call 911 if they see anything unusual,” Flint Police Chief Phil Hart said.

The local community received nationwide attention and praise after hosting a series of peaceful protests in response to the death of George Floyd. The City of Flint actively supported these peaceful protests and worked with organizers to develop a 6-point action plan to address issues of systemic racism.

How to be a part of the Black Lives Matter Advisory Council to the Flint Police Department

This online form is now available for those wishing to express an interest in serving on the Black Lives Matter Advisory Council to the Flint Police Department. Created by Flint Mayor Sheldon Neeley, the advisory council will help ensure our residents have a seat at the table and a direct connection to the City of Flint Police Department to express concerns and resolve issues. This is expected to be a 7-member committee, so space is limited. Committee members must be residents of the City of Flint.

06/03/2020

An open letter from Flint Mayor Sheldon Neeley:

Flint has throughout its history been a guiding force for our country. It is again.

As the world watches our peaceful protests, they are seeing the Flint we know and love. Flint is a city of champions, not because of the actions of any one of us — but because of the collective spirit we embody. We are descendants of innovators and great business minds, factory workers who sat down for what was right and single-handedly built the American Middle Class, the women who built tanks to lead us to victory in WWII, and the masses who selected a black man mayor in 1966 and by popular vote became the first city in the nation to adopt a fair housing ordinance.

We know when we protest that it is about the past and the future. We know that protest is about building, not tearing down.

We are devastated by the death of George Floyd. The gross injustice cuts to the core of this community that has long defined itself as social justice leaders.

When the people rightfully began gathering to protest in response to Mr. Floyd’s death, I too relied on those lessons I learned growing up in Flint: The only appropriate response to protesters is to listen and the only appropriate answer is action.

I personally met with protest organizers as did Flint Police Chief Phil Hart and other key members of my staff. Those discussions led to development of a six-point action plan for the City of Flint to start our work — including development of a Black Lives Matter Advisory Council to continue our work for the long term.

To elected leaders across the country, I say: As we continue to see violent protests in our state and in our country, I urge you to please just stop and listen. We have work that needs to be done.

Work with the protesters. Work with each other. Together, we will make this country a better place.

And, to the protesters, I say: Thank you.

A majority of us living in Flint today also are the descendants of slaves, the descendants of someone who survived shackles, the descendants of someone who despite all odds saw the country take its first somewhat reluctant steps toward equality. In your protests on the lawn at Flint City Hall and around the world, we have seen every shade of skin join in a universal fight for humanity. Thank you.

Thank you for fighting for justice. Thank you for sparking a national conversation. We need to keep talking — and to keep voting — until those in positions of power are willing to listen.

Together, let’s build the tomorrow we deserve today.

For the love of our community,

Sheldon A. Neeley
Mayor of the City of Flint

Statement by Mayor Sheldon Neeley on the death of George Floyd:

The death of George Floyd haunts me. In his face, I see my own. I see my friends, family, and ancestors. I see Ahmaud Arbery. I see Trayvon Martin. I see a sea of faces whose names we will never know. In his death, I see our failures as a nation and society. I see the reality of our world.

It is a painful reminder that we must persevere in our fight for equality. More than talk, we must also be willing to take action.

As former chair of the Michigan Legislative Black Caucus, I have begun developing a statewide coalition of mayors to tackle the issue of racial disparities within our own state, develop policies to combat systemic racism and work toward lasting change. On a local level, I am pleased to say Flint Police Chief Phil Hart will bring additional training to our own police force as part of the Truth, Racial Healing, and Transformation program through the Community Foundation of Greater Flint.

There is only one way to move forward: Together. We must actively build unity around the world and here in our own community.

My heartfelt sympathies go out to the family of Mr. Floyd. I ask all praying people to join my family and I in lifting and strengthening them. Now more than ever, they need to know, and we all need to remember, that love is greater than hate.

More than 500 people were tested for COVID-19 this weekend through a special partnership that provided free, no prerequisite testing to City of Flint residents at Shiloh Missionary Baptist Church.

“This is evidence of what is possible with partnership. We are so appreciative of our state and county partners coming together to provide this testing opportunity to our community,” Mayor Sheldon Neeley said. “Testing and teamwork are important tools we will continue to utilize to fight this deadly virus.”

In total, 223 individuals were tested on Saturday and 299 on Sunday.

The State of Michigan — through Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, state Rep. Cyntia Neeley and the Michigan National Guard — joined forces with the City of Flint and Genesee County Health Department to conduct the testing.

Helping to make these heavy times a bit lighter, Mayor Sheldon Neeley helped to award Cavetta Munerlyn — a 4.0 honor student and secretary of Madison Academy High School National Honors Society — her high school diploma today, her 18th birthday.

Mayor Neeley also presented Cavetta with a gift honoring her father, a custom face mask embroidered with "Remembering Duper." Calvin "Duper" Munerlyn was killed in the line of duty while working as a security guard on May 1 after asking a customer to wear a fask mask. The Munerlyn family with the support of Mayor Neeley is asking all Flint residents to honor Duper by wearing face masks to help save lives.

The family also is receiving a Key to the City issued posthumously to Calvin Munerlyn by Mayor Neeley and a flag flown over the state Capitol in honor of Mr. Munerlyn's service by state Rep. Cynthia Neeley.
