Statement from County Board Chairman Dan Cronin

Statement attributable to DuPage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin:

“This evening, I stand with Sheriff Mendrick and State’s Attorney Berlin in support of our DuPage County communities. We condemn the actions that resulted in the death of George Floyd and we support people’s right to assemble and peacefully protest. But there is a difference between protesting peacefully and committing criminal acts. Protestors in DuPage County who damage or destroy private or public property, or who commit criminal acts like arson, burglary, and criminal damage to property will be arrested, prosecuted and if found guilty, imprisoned.  We have no tolerance for those who would use this tragic occurrence to cause further pain in our community.”
