As our nation is celebrating "National Police Week," today is Peace Officers' Memorial Day and our flags are flying at half staff as we remember our fallen, Brett C. Dickey, end of watch: February 13, 1996.

In 1962, President Kennedy proclaimed May 15th as National Peace Officers' Memorial Day and the calendar week in which May 15th falls as National Police Week. Established by a joint resolution of Congress in 1962, National Police Week paus special recognition to those law enforcement officers who have lost their lives in the line of duty for the safety and protection of others.

Sending condolences and prayers for our brothers and sisters in blue at the Savannah Police Department who lost one of their own in an officer-involved shooting last night. The second officer involved was treated and released.

Please pray for the department and all affected.

#gilmersheriffThe Savannah Police Department confirms that an officer involved in a shooting incident yesterday evening on Bull Street has succumbed to their injuries.

At approximately 8:10 p.m. on May 11, officers responded to the 2300 block of Bull Street to follow-up on a previous robbery call. Officers were notified of a vehicle description and upon locating and approaching the vehicle, a shooting occurred. Two officers as well as the suspect sustained injuries and were transported to the hospital at that time. The second officer involved was treated and released.

In line with transparency and due to SPD protocol, the Georgia Bureau of Investigations (GBI) was called in to investigate this incident further. Further questions and inquiries concerning the investigation should be forwarded to the GBI.

Please keep our officers and their families in your thoughts and prayers at this time. We want to thank the community for their continued support.

SPD is planning to hold a press conference this afternoon to release further information. The time and location of the press conference will be released to the media later today.
