Statement concerning the death of Tyre Nichols In Memphis

This incident is deeply upsetting. As a policing agency, the actions of these officers are appalling and reprehensible. Our thoughts go out to the Nichols family, friends, colleagues and the greater Memphis community. The individuals involved have rightly been fired and criminally charged in Mr. Nichol’s death. Hamilton Police are working, through both continued and open dialogue and action, to better understand and serve all communities. We are committed to ensuring everyone in our community is safe and feels safe.
