Message to the Community from VP Anderson and Chief Williams

On Friday evening, Chief Gary Williams and I sat in my office and watched the footage of the inhumane death of Tyre Nichols at the hands of five Memphis police officers. Much like George Floyd, Tyre’s calls for his mother in those moments of suffering cannot help but leave us and others with a sense of heartache and horror. We offer our condolences to Tyre’s family and loved ones in this time of loss and pain.
