Hattiesburg Mayor Johnny DuPree released a statement to the Hattiesburg Police Department in response to the shootings and deaths of Dallas Police officers earlier this week.

To the Officers of the Hattiesburg Police Department:

I want to make sure you know that I respect and value your service to the community of Hattiesburg. The events in Dallas on Thursday were horrible and my heart goes out to the families of the slain officers. Sadly, we have experienced the same too many times.

I thank you for protecting us everyday with valor and class. We are committed to making sure you return home the same way you left. If there are needs we have not addressed, please let Chief Parker and me know. 

We are one community because of your service. Thank you again.
