MEDIA AND PUBLIC STATEMENT

"As President of the Florida Sheriffs Association, I am deeply saddened by
the apparent attack on law enforcement officers occurring across our nation.

I, and the entire membership of our association, offer our thoughts and
prayers to the families of the slain and injured.

I am calling on our leaders across the nation to denounce the assault on law
enforcement officers who bravely patrol and protect our homeland. I am also
calling on our clergy to stand united in prayer against hatred of any kind.

I remind all of us that we are the United States of America!"

Orange County Sheriff Jerry L. Demings, President

Florida Sheriffs Association
