SANFORD, FL – Declaring that Sanford doesn’t have the “luxury of time,” the new interim Police Chief Richard Myers said on Friday that he would launch an “a-to-z review” of the department, and vowed to mend wounds opened by the Feb. 26 shooting of unarmed African-American teen Trayvon Martin.
“Sanford has gone through a highly traumatic event,” Myers said in his first news conference here.
“We don’t have the luxury of taking our time,” he continued. “Relationship building here is urgent work.”
Myers began his post Friday, becoming the second man to lead the police department since its embattled chief, Bill Lee, stepped down temporarily in late March, over questions about his department’s investigation into Martin’s death.
