Statement from HAPCA on Tyre Nichols
The Houston Area Police Chiefs Association is deeply disturbed by the officers' actions in Memphis, Tennessee, which resulted in the inexcusable death of Tyre Nichols. The officers' actions do not reflect the values of HAPCA and our members. We denounce the conduct of any officers that violate the trust of the communities we serve in a way that disparages our profession. As police leaders, we remain committed to preserving human life as the highest regard to our profession. We must continue to promote trust and transparency within our communities.
We extend our thoughts and prayers to the family and friends of Mr. Nichols and pray for healing as the nation mourns his tragic death.
