Minor Skirmishes During Prescott Valley Protest Saturday Night

Prescott Valley Police say there were minor skirmishes between two groups during a protest Saturday night in Prescott Valley. Police say around 150 people gathered at police headquarters to protest the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis. One group protested the unreasonable force used by law enforcement, the other group was to support law enforcement. At times the discussions became heated, with minor fights breaking out. Officers from the Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office and Prescott Police Department were called in for support. There were no injuries reported and the protest ended at around midnight. Prescott Valley Police Chief Steven Roser says “our officers are highly trained professionals who deserve respect from everyone they serve. Why? Because we truly respect the rights of everyone and are simply trying our best to keep the community safe from all.” Roser added: “we will not tolerate violence towards anyone, nor will we allow people to violate the laws of our country, state, and community. Those who wish to protest have that right to do so peacefully; however, they do not have the right to infringe on peace and tranquility of our beautiful town or neighbors.”
