Lt. Governor Patrick Statement on Chief David Brown’s Retirement


AUSTIN – I congratulate Dallas Police Chief David Brown who announced his retirement earlier this week for his long and distinguished career in law enforcement.

I witnessed Chief Brown’s leadership first-hand on the tragic night of the police shootings in Dallas. In the days immediately following the attack, I saw him lead his city and the nation in honoring the service of those officers who paid the ultimate sacrifice.

I wish Chief Brown and his family the best. Jan and I are grateful to him for his service.
