Laurel County, KY - Sheriff John Root, his deputies and staff of the Laurel County Sheriff's Office send their sincere condolences to the Dallas Police Department, its officers, and their families during this difficult time.
Our unsung guardians have a special place in God's kingdom. Rest well, Brothers, You have served bravely.
5 police officers were shot and killed, and 7 wounded on Thursday night, ambushed by snipers in Dallas. May your officers “Rest in peace-- they are now members of an elite group called The Thin Blue Line of Heroes”. There is no greater sacrifice that a person can give for his fellow man.
In honor and respect for these officers, the Laurel County Sheriff's Office joined thousands of police officers with blue lights flashing in a minute of silence at 11:45 A.M. Friday morning.
