Attacks on police continued today.
Early this morning a Milwaukee (WI) police officer was shot in a “vicious” attack as he sat in his squad car.
Just a few hours ago, law enforcement officers, in the Baton Rouge (LA) area, were targeted with three officers killed and six others injured in what appears to be a planned attack. The scene is fluid and on going and members of the public safety community are on-site searching for additional suspects and tending to the injured.
The International Public Safety Association mourns for the victims, their families, the Baton Rouge and Milwaukee communities, praying that communities, public safety, and leadership across this nation come to gather to end this senseless violence.
Our prayers are with you all,
