Westchester police chiefs' association, DA's office 'strongly condemn' assault on U.S.  Capitol

Editor’s note: This press release was provided by Westchester County Chiefs of Police Association and the Office of the Westchester County District Attorney.

The Westchester County Chiefs of Police Association and the Office of the Westchester County District Attorney strongly condemn the violent assault on our nation’s Capitol on January 6 and stand united against hate.

We recognize that this is an uncertain and uneasy time in our county and across the country. We pledge that law enforcement agencies will continue to protect and serve the people and communities of Westchester County and maintain public safety in a fair and unbiased manner.

We also want the people of Westchester to know that law enforcement agencies across the county stand ready and willing to work closely with our federal law enforcement partners on investigations of the insurrection in Washington.

We send our condolences to the families of Capitol Police Officers Brian D. Sicknick and Howard Liebengood and those who were injured trying to protect the Capitol and its inhabitants.
