Missouri governor to pay respect to fallen Dallas officers
JEFFERSON CITY - Gov. Jay Nixon will attend a memorial service Tuesday honoring fallen Dallas police officers.
“Missouri stands with the law enforcement officers of Dallas in grieving the loss of these officers who died protecting others,” said Gov. Nixon.
“Tragically, we have just seen in Missouri the very real dangers that law enforcement officers subject themselves to on a daily basis. Being at the memorial service is a sign of the enormous respect we have for the sacrifice of the officers in Dallas, and conveys the support of the people of Missouri for law enforcement officers across the country.”
Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings invited Nixon. He will be accompanied at the memorial by Missouri Director of Public Safety, Lane Roberts and Superintendent of the Missouri State Highway Patrol, Col. Bret Johnson, who all wish to pay respect and show support for law enforcement.
