Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton today released the following statement on the attack on the Dallas Police Department:

“The attack on the Dallas Police Department and its officers is a dangerous reminder of the unpredictable threats our men and women in law enforcement face every day. Led by Chief David Brown, the department’s response has been professional, working to end this situation as quickly, and as safely, as possible.

Law enforcement, be they our local police officers, state law enforcement or federal agents, stand between law-abiding citizens, safe communities and those whose intentions are to destroy lives and our sense of security. We support and appreciate their selfless and effective efforts to keep our cities and state safe.”
