Statement from the Durham Police Department Regarding Protest at County Courthouse

Durham Police Department (DPD) officers monitored the protests that occurred in the city tonight to ensure the protests were conducted in a safe manner and that no infractions occurred within city jurisdiction.

The DPD is aware that a Confederate monument was toppled at the old Durham County courthouse. Because this incident occurred on county property,  where county law enforcement officials were staffed, no arrests were made by DPD officers.

The Durham County Sheriff’s Office is the agency that has jurisdiction over all county buildings and landmarks. When monitoring such incidents the Sheriff’s Office is the decision-making agency regarding law enforcement response on matters concerning county property.
