Default State of Emergency' declared by LMPD as Breonna Taylor decision looms

'State of Emergency' declared by LMPD as Breonna Taylor decision looms

September 21, 2020 | Updated 3 hrs ago
Cameron has not released a timetable for the announcement. However, the federal courthouse downtown, The Gene Snyder U.S. Courthouse & Customhouse, is closed this week in anticipation of a decision in the case.


Last week, Tom Moore, the facilities manager of the General Services Administration, said the Department of Homeland Security had identified four buildings it classified as "high risk" targets in Louisville in the wake of civil backlash in connection with the decision. Those include the aforementioned federal courthouse, the Romano L. Mazzoli Federal Building, the U.S. Attorney's Office building and the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement building.


The General Services Administration has already begun taking proactive steps to protect the buildings, Moore said.

The Louisville Metro Police Department has canceled all off days and vacation requests until further notice, as the agency prepares for Attorney General Daniel Cameron's announcement in the Breonna Taylor case.
"The public may also see barriers being staged around downtown, which is another part of our preparations," Washington said in the statement.


In a memo, dated Sept. 21, Interim Chief of Police Robert Schroeder declares a state of emergency for LMPD, enacting the changes. [through Friday the 25th]
"To ensure we have the appropriate level of staffing to provide for public safety services and our policing functions, effective immediately the LMPD will operate under the emergency staffing and reporting guidelines as outlined in the Standard Operating Procedures, Emergency Response Plan, and collective bargaining agreements until further notice," the memo states.

The General Services Administration has already begun taking proactive steps to protect the buildings, Moore said.
