Officer involved in botched raid that resulted in Breonna Taylor’s death announces retirement
Mattingly said in a statement from his attorney that he hopes the city can “heal and unite” moving forward.
“Serving as a police officer for the past 21 years has been one of the greatest honors and privileges of my life,” Mattingly said. “Having this opportunity in the city I grew up in and love has made that choice an even greater honor. I’ve never taken lightly the responsibility that comes along with serving the great citizens of Louisville,” he said.
“It’s my hope and prayer, that moving forward, our city can heal and unite,” he continued. “My plan was not to move on from this calling, but in the best interest of my family, the time has come.”
Mattingly said that the DOJ investigation into the department played no role in his decision to retire, and that he had “great faith in the men and women of LMPD” to continue to serve the community in a “professional and unbiased manner.”
