Dear campus community,

As you may be aware, University of California Police Department (UCPD) made an arrest earlier
today of one of our employees. A video of the incident shows UCPD officers using force to make
the arrest. UCPD and the campus administration always see the use of force as a last resort and
it is used only when a person is not cooperating or complying with the instructions of officers
involved in carrying out their duties.
