The planned protests and marches that began at noon and 2:00 p.m. today at Adams Park have concluded, and these peaceful events occurred without incident. The protest at noon travelled along sidewalks on Main Street before returning to Adams Park.
The City of Wheaton and the Wheaton Police Department respect the right of people to assemble peacefully. The participants met the City’s expectation for a peaceful gathering. Wheaton Police had been in contact with organizers before the event and provided a presence at the event to ensure everyone’s safety.
We appreciate the cooperation of participants in helping ensure this was a peaceful gathering.
