LPD responds to video of officer following family walking down the street

LUBBOCK, Texas -

The Lubbock Police Department was made aware of a recent YouTube video posted depicting an officer following a family as they walked down the street. The department immediately conducted an investigation. 

 Below is a statement issued by the police department:

The Lubbock Police Department received a 911 call in reference to a check subject on July 15 just after 9 p.m. in the area of Elgin Avenue and 40th Street. The reporting party requested that the LPD check on a child walking with two adults. The reporting party advised that they were concerned for the safety of the child. When the officer who was dispatched to the call arrived, the two adults with the child refused to provide the officer with any information and were very uncooperative. Based on the fact that the adults had refused to speak to the officer, the only option the officer had to ensure the safety of the child was to follow and observe. Once the adults and the child reached their residence, the officer stopped and noted the address on the call sheet before leaving. The officer acted professionally throughout the encounter and provided the adults with all of his information as requested.

The Lubbock Police Department is committed to accountability and transparency with the citizens we serve.
