“Before I begin, I want to acknowledge a tragedy that happened in my community this week,” said Rep. Harder. “Officer Jimmy Inn lost his life in the line of duty, leaving behind his wife, a fellow member of the department, and three kids including a 7-month-old son. Officer Inn was a member of the honor guard and deeply respected in the community. His chief called him the epitome of what a police officer should be. My prayers are with his family, his friends, and his department. Officer Inn’s death is yet another reminder of the work we need to do to bring our communities and our police officers together and make sure everyone can get home safe each night.”
Following his opening remarks, Rep. Harder discussed how law enforcement officers can best be trained and equipped to handle mental health emergencies when they arise.
