City of Petersburg Condemns Violence of Those Sworn to Protect Our Communities


Petersburg City Council, the Petersburg Bureau of Police and the Petersburg government team send condolences to the family of Tyre Nichols and the people of Memphis, Tennessee as video reveals the needless brutality and death inflicted by officers sworn to uphold the law. 


“Acts of violence by those the public has placed trust must not be tolerated and have no place in society,” said Petersburg Police Chief Travis Christian. “All Petersburg Police Officers pledge on their honor never to betray integrity or public trust. We hold our officers accountable in all actions taken in upholding the law and protecting the citizens of Petersburg.” 


“The City of Petersburg is committed to ensuring that this type of unwarranted behavior and lack of respect for human life will not take place,” said Mayor Sam Parham. “We must continue to come together as a community to find solutions to resolve conflict in a civil and just manner.”
