MICHIGAN (WJMN) – On Monday a joint statement from the Michigan Sheriffs’ Association (MSA) Board of Directors was released, providing a unified response following the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis.

In the statement, the MSA condemns the actions leading to the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis Police officers. The statement goes on to say those officers have degraded, disparaged, and discredited the profession and broken the trust of those they serve.

“We want Michiganders to know that these actions will not be accepted or tolerated.”
