Palm Beach County Ric Bradshaw has responded to the tragic shooting of police officers in Dallas.

He released the following statement Friday afternoon.

"This is truly a dark day for all law enforcement. When bad people assault and kill law enforcement, they essentially attack the entire community. Law enforcement officers risk their lives every day to ensure that the community they serve can have a safe and secure life. Our deputies at the Palm Beach County Sheriff’s Office are true professionals, and brave men and women. They will continue to do their job, keeping you safe. They will not be intimidated by anyone or group that threatens to harm them in any way. I hope that the Dallas officers who lost their lives will rest in peace and receive heaven’s reward for their service."
