Police officers across the country are coming together after Thursday night’s violence in Dallas that resulted in 12 officers shot and five officers killed.
It has been a devastating night. We are sad to report a fifth officer has died.

Police departments across the country sent their condolences and stood in solidarity with the Dallas Police Department and the Dallas Area Rapid Transit (DART), both of which lost officers on Thursday night. Some of the departments, such as in Orlando, have also recently suffered mass shootings.
Government officials also offered their condolences and support to the victims and the police officers working through the night.
Our prayers are with the fallen TX officers and their loved ones. May God provide comfort and watch over all of our law enforcement heroes.

Men & women of law enforcement selflessly run into harm’s way to save the lives of others. May God protect them and bring peace upon Dallas.

During a press conference Friday morning, Dallas Police Chief David Brown provided an update on the investigation and asked for people to pray for them.
“We don’t feel much support most days,” Brown said. “Let’s not make today most days. Please, we need your support to protect you from men like these, who carried out this tragic, tragic event.”
