CPOC President Chief Jennifer Branning’s Statement on Tyre Nichols Tragic Death

“The inexcusable and horrific actions by Memphis police officers, which resulted in the tragic death of Tyre Nichols, shocks the conscience of all communities, including our own. Members of every community are entitled to receive respect, fairness, and dignity from those who employ to serve and protect them. We must do better through honest, open dialogue, to build and keep trust while pursuing an end to violence and mistrust. Our sincerest sympathies and prayers are with Mr. Nichols’ family, friends, and neighbors as they mourn this terrible loss.”
