Santa Rosa Police Chief Rainer Navarro issued a statement on April 13th following Mr. Brodd’s testimony during the Derek Chauvin trial saying “Mr. Brodd’s comments do not reflect the values and beliefs of the Santa Rosa Police Department.”— Dion Lim (@DionLimTV) April 18, 2021
Police believe the incidents are connected.
Brodd no longer lives in Santa Rosa. He left the force in 2004.
The city's police chief this week said his testimony "do not reflect the values and beliefs" of the department.
