“Dear (insert city manager, mayor, council member name),
I am a resident of Prineville (insert another alternative concerned local citizen) and I am requesting the immediate removal of Police Chief Dale Cummins.
On June 13th, 2020 Police Chief Dale Cummins, of the Prineville Police Department used the department’s social media account to attack and defame the character of a woman of color. His carelessness and abuse of power put this family in further danger from threats of violence.
Police protect and serve all.
He has proven he is unable to do his job. Clearly breaking his oath of office and the code of ethics he was sworn to uphold.
