Utah update

Surprise, surprise.

First of all, thank you for your patience as we continue to let the investigative process take its course. As you may have seen the Utah Highway Patrol held a press conference, to explain the recent happenings with the Trooper John Gardner case. The purpose of this press conference was to restore public confidence, be open with the media and most of all the public. We have received many phone calls and e-mails expressing your support and concerns, we thank you for that. Our main priority in the future will continue to be, “To provide a safe and secure environment for all people in Utah.”

We have taken this matter very seriously and have spent many man-hours looking into the allegations. In regards to the case, we have found Trooper Gardner’s actions were lawful and reasonable under the circumstances that he found himself in. However, the Utah Highway Patrol expects its Troopers to be professional and communicate as much as possible with those they come in contact. With this being said, the Utah Attorney Generals office is going to look into the matter further at the Utah Highway Patrol’s request. We will continue to always look at and review our polices as we have done in the past. We appreciate your concern and input as it pertains to the Trooper John Gardner case.

Lawful and reasonable my ass.
