In a statement released yesterday, Chief Brown said, "Let's always remember the fallen officers including the five officers on July 7, 2016, and the brave men and women of the Dallas Police Department for their sacrifices to keep Dallas safe. Their memory will remain with all of us forever."
Chief Brown's retirement will become effective on October 22.
