CITY OF BERWYN: Notice Of Retraction

Local Government

By Press release submission | Apr 21, 2019


City of Berwyn issued the following announcement on April 17.

In April of 2019, the Berwyn Police Department published an article in its “Berwyn WATCH” community newsletter to inform Berwyn residents about transient crimes. In this article, a physical description was included that could be interpreted as insensitive to certain racial and ethnic groups. This was not our intention, and we extend our sincerest apologies to any groups or individuals that may have misconstrued this as an affront. The members of the Berwyn Police Department consider ourselves fortunate to not only be a part of a community that is made better by the diversity of its residents, but more importantly to be a part of a community whose residents engage, inform and enlighten us so that we can better connect with them moving forward

Attached is the amended article, which will also be replaced in the online version of the Berwyn WATCH newsletter.
