Statement from Senate President Fann and the Senate Republican Caucus on shooting of federal security officer

"We are waking up this morning to the news that a federal security officer shot in downtown Phoenix yesterday is not seriously wounded and should make a full recovery. That is certainly welcome news to what could have been a serious tragedy.

This incident is just the latest in a number of attacks on our men and women in law enforcement. In southern California, authorities are still searching for the person responsible for the ambush of two Los Angeles County deputies over the weekend. These deputies were simply in their vehicle doing their job when the suspect walked up and opened fire.

We cannot pretend to think that the recent protests against police across the country are not having an impact, either directly or indirectly. Now more than ever, we ask Arizonans to condemn these calls for defunding the police. The brave people who put on the uniform have an already difficult job, facing life or death decisions while protecting our communities. We thank them for their service and pray for the full recovery of this officer."
