Nassau County, NY - July 8, 2016 - James Carver, president of the Nassau Police Benevolent Association, issued a statement today on the tragic killings of five police officers and the wounding of others in Dallas, Texas, Thursday night.

“Our hearts go out to the families and friends of the Dallas Police Officers so tragically murdered and wounded in the senseless shootings in the downtown area Thursday night. We join with the families and friends, and with all those nationwide, in mourning this atrocity in Dallas.

“These shootings are yet another reminder of the dangers police officers face in their daily working lives. An officer putting on a uniform in the morning can never say with complete certainty that he or she will see loved ones in the evening. It takes a special kind of dedication to do this kind of work, and the officers gunned down in Dallas, and all officers nationwide, are ingrained with this kind of dedication to duty.
