“The entire law enforcement community is in mourning today. Our thoughts and prayers are openly expressed to the families and friends of the officers killed or wounded in Dallas, as well as the Dallas Police Department and their community as whole. The facts are officers were murdered and/or seriously injured while selflessly protecting the Constitutional Rights of their fellow citizens. This awful tragedy again demonstrates the intentional, wanton harm some in our society maliciously direct toward their guardians. On behalf of the men and women of the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department, our heartfelt sorrow and respect is genuinely expressed.” — Chief Joseph H. Lumpkin, Sr.
