Louisville police declare state of emergency ahead of Breonna Taylor decisionThe Louisville Metro Police Department is canceling all off-day and vacation requests for personnel until further notice in anticipation of an announcement in the Breonna Taylor investigation. Chief of Police Robert J. Schroeder has declared a state of emergency, according to an internal memo released on Monday. The decision comes in anticipation of an announcement in the Breonna Taylor case.

The declaration means that departments are operating on emergency staffing and reporting, which cancels off-days and previously unapproved vacation requests. The emergency announcement, which does not extend to the city itself, was created to ensure departments had the “appropriate level of staffing to provide for public safety services.”

Attorney General Daniel Cameron  has not given a specific timeframe for announcing whether or not charges will be filed against the officers involved in this case..
