Wednesday, October 11, 2017

The PBA extends our deepest condolences to the family of slain Texas Tech University Police Officer Floyd East Jr as well as the entire Texas Tech University Police Department. Officer East, a married father of two daughters, was shot by a defendant who pulled a gun when he was at the station being processed on a drug investigation. This tragedy shows just how dangerous University Policing has become, as a number of University Police officers around the country made the ultimate sacrifice in recent years. Funeral arrangements to follow once we have them.
