As police officers we are held to a higher standard of trust, professionalism and service to our community. Honor, Integrity and Courage are the core values of all members of the Kingman Police Department and I am proud to serve along side the men and women who have chosen to serve our community.”

The letter stated the following:

The Arizona Association of Chiefs of Police (AACOP) are deeply saddened and concerned by the death of Mr. Tyre Nichols due to the actions of police officers with the Memphis (TN) Police Department.

Their actions are a betrayal of the standards, ethics, and expectations of all law enforcement and more importantly, the community. Their actions erode the trust between the community and law enforcement.
