The following is a statement from Chief John Drake and the   developments in the Delke case:
 “Andrew Delke resigned from the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department on Thursday, July 1. Today’s guilty plea ends three years of waiting by the Hambrick Family, the Delke family, our police department and Nashville as a whole.  It has been a difficult three years for many, and I again express condolences to the relatives of Daniel Hambrick over his loss. It is my hope that with today’s court action, we can all continue to move forward, knowing that we cannot undo the events of July 26, 2018.  My clear priorities continue to be precision policing, de-escalation and strengthening community partnerships.  Our department has and continues to evolve to best serve all of Nashville.”
