Uh… Like many of you, I watched the video of the police officer interacting with the University of Utah Medical Center nurse Alex Wubbles for the first time through the media late yesterday.
What I saw is completely unacceptable to the values of my Administration and unexceptable to the values of the Salt Lake City Police Department and this community.
I extended a personal appology just now on the phone to Ms. Wubbels for what she has been through and for simply doing her job.
There is currently an Internal Affairs investigation examining the actions, and the Civilian Review Board is conducting a parallel investigation.
I have reiterated to Chief Brown that I expect the highest level of professionalism and integrity from his team. I have also instructed Chief Brown to conduct a thorough review of all policies and trainings to ensure respect for all individuals, in all situations. Following the incident Salt Lake City Police Department command met with hospital administration. We immediately changed policies that may have been a factor in this encounter, and the officer’s duties have been modified.
I take these incidences very seriously. Since I took office, I have been working with Salt Lake City Police Department to increase our use of de-escalation techniques and we have had great success, and this incident is a troubling set back to those efforts. No medical professional in Salt Lake City should be hindered from performing their duties, and certainly not be fearful of the police officers they so often partner with to save lives.
It is my sincere desire to get back to a very cooperative, respectful, and friendly relationship with our ‘brothers and sisters in white’ we work so closely with.
Salt Lake City Police Officers have a very soft spot in our hearts for all medical professionals. We know that if we are ever hurt in the line of duty, it is their caring hands that will perhaps save our lives one day.
[To date, we have suspended the officer from the blood draw program. We have already replaced our blood draw policy with a new policy. All remaining officers on the blood draw program have reviewed, and are operating under the new policy and protocol.]
