Edwardsburg Police respond to Dallas shootings through Facebook post

Edwardsburg Police posted to their Facebook page Friday in response to the Dallas police shootings.

Five police officers were killed and seven other officers were wounded in the shootings that began around 10:00 p.m. Thursday.

Chief Timothy Kozal with the Edwardsburg Police Department posted to the department’s Facebook page in a post that said,

"We Stand With the Dallas Police Department. Once they were brothers, fathers, sons, husbands and future grandfathers. They choose to be the peacekeepers, the mentors, and the guardians that go towards the sound of gunfire. They were cops.

The average street cop’s job has become inherently more difficult, emotionally draining and even more precarious.

All society suffers as a result of the continued rhetorical war on American Law Enforcement. Officers' morale has deteriorated. There is a continuous decline in self-initiated enforcement as officers remove themselves from the inherently dangerous investigative stops. Fewer guns are being seized, violence has increased and public hostility towards police has risen.

We will remain vigilant. We will be strong in the face of adversity. We will become stronger. We are the guardians. We stand with the Dallas Police Department. We choose to be cops.”
