Beverly Hills – The following is a statement from the City of Beverly Hills regarding today’s press conference held by attorneys Benjamin Crump and Bradley Gage related to ongoing litigation:
The City of Beverly Hills is an international destination that always welcomes visitors from across the country and around the world.
The role of the Beverly Hills Police Department is to enforce the law, regardless of race.
The statistics presented referencing the number of convictions is a mischaracterization of the evidence in this case. In addition, the 1,088 arrests referenced includes people cited and released, not just custodial arrests.
The City denies and will continue to strongly defend itself against these allegations.
