PAC Release Statement on OIS
Dec 29, 2017
“The Police Advisory Commission would like to extend our condolences to Mr. Plowden’s family and friends. We want the family to know that we [the PAC] will do everything to ensure that the investigation is transparent, objective and thorough,” said Hans Menos, PAC Executive Director. “Whenever there is a loss of life it is tragic. However, the loss of yet another young, black and unarmed man is something that many in the city of Philadelphia and around the country understand to be especially problematic, and for marginalized black and brown communities, especially painful. We want to work towards fully understanding, acknowledging and easing that pain. The PAC is currently receiving regular updates from investigators and intends to continue to monitor the investigation.”
