Statement By the Wisconsin Chiefs of Police Association, Badger State Sheriffs Association, and the Wisconsin Sheriffs and Deputy Sheriffs Association Regarding the Officer Involved Shooting In Kenosha
We in law enforcement hope you join us in praying for the Kenosha community and for all those involved in Sunday’s officer involved shooting. Now is the time for empathy and compassion, and we encourage elected officials at both the state and national level to not rush to judgement and further fuel the flames of violence and division.
It is imperative the Wisconsin Department of Justice conduct a thorough and swift investigation into the incident. We await the facts of this investigation to determine the next course of action for law enforcement agencies and those involved.
