Statement on the death of Tyre Nichols

The men and women of the Berkeley Police Department condemn, and are appalled by, the incident involving Memphis Police Officers that led to the tragic death of Tyre Nichols.  The impact of excessive force is profoundly disturbing and undermines our efforts to build and maintain trust with our diverse community; a trust that we understand is essential to community policing.    

The Berkeley Police Department remains committed to upholding our core values of service with integrity, respect and professionalism at all times, to every community member. 

We stand with our community in denouncing this incident and all incidents of police brutality. This never should have happened to Tyre Nichols and we offer our sincerest condolences to his family and friends.
