Statement of IACP President Richard Beary on the shootings in Chattanooga, Tennessee

As a police chief, father of two law enforcement officers, and President of the International Association of Chiefs of Police I am saddened to hear of the shooting that took place today in Chattanooga, Tennessee. This is yet another example of the dangers that the men and women who wear the uniform face on a daily basis and the gun violence that continues to plague the United States.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of those who have been affected by this tragedy.
