On behalf of the Independent Citizen Police Review Board and staff, I extend our condolences to Officer Hall’s family, fiancé and police colleagues.

As Tennyson observed, God’s finger touched him, and he slept. BUT his slumber began as another inhumane, senseless and cowardly act of violence. We have lost a young man who selflessly embraced the community, our City, with fierce courage and compassion.

Now, his dreams lay beneath our feet as we anxiously await news of yet another senseless act of violence that will forever change another family. It must stop. We have a shared responsibility to keep each other and our police safe, as they too are important to their families & children.

Collectively, we must assume the courage exemplified by Officer Hall. To keep our families and children safe, we must have that same courage so that when we see or hear something that scares us, we will tell the people who can help us, the police. Officer Hall would want it that way. That will honor his memory.

Rest in Peace Officer Hall, #4673.
