Mayor Tony T. Yarber's Statement in Support of Law Enforcement Officers, Agencies
This administration has worked tirelessly to create a seamless city where race and class work as partners and not as antagonists. We have made great strides in our efforts to build political bridges inside and outside of the city. An integral part of this task has included the many joint efforts by the Jackson Police Department collaborating with outside law enforcement agencies. This approach has resulted in the development of a family relationship that is formidable and cohesive in its goal of serving and protecting all citizens. Any challenges that we face in this area will continue to be resolved in an honorable and peaceful manner.
We refuse to be sidetracked by comments that do not represent the heartbeat of the Capital City nor its respect and honor to those who serve and protect us all.
