The Birmingham Police Department would like to extend our condolences to the family of Tyre Nichols of Memphis, Tennessee.
Anytime a tragic incident occurs such as this, all law enforcement agencies are hurt because of the shame that is now brought upon our profession. As police officers, we all take an oath and should hold ourselves accountable for our actions.
At The Birmingham Police Department, we share in holding all our officers to a higher standard of displaying our motto of commitment, excellence, and integrity in every situation that our officers are placed in.
We do not condone the actions that these former officers took and will remain firm in our stance that as a department, we will follow and uphold a true moral compass in all our actions.
