Statement from Police Chief

Boxborough Police Department Coin

BOXBOROUGH - The following is a statement from Chief Warren Ryder regarding the verdict in the Derek Chauvin trial:


Last week, Derek Chauvin was rightly found guilty in the murder of George Floyd. The news that Chauvin will go to jail for his heinous actions, however, does not erase the pain and loss of life he caused. Much more needs to happen in our country to ensure the sanctity of all human life is protected and upheld. 


We at the Boxborough Police Department have taken an oath to protect and serve everyone in our community, and that responsibility is one we cherish. We are wholly committed to earning and maintaining the trust of our community, and we pledge to continue to work tirelessly to preserve and fortify that relationship with our residents, business owners and anyone we interact with. 


We hold ourselves to the highest standards of policing and community service and will continue to do so. I pledge to continue to prioritize partnership and transparency. Lastly, we wish to reaffirm that we stand with and care deeply for our Black community not only at this particularly painful moment, but always.
