Attorney General Cameron Releases Statement Following Conclusion of White House Law Enforcement Roundtable

Frankfort, Ky. (June 8, 2020) – Attorney General Daniel Cameron today participated in a White House law enforcement roundtable on behalf of the Commonwealth led by President Donald J. Trump and attended by law enforcement stakeholders.

Following the conclusion of the roundtable, Attorney General Cameron released the following statement:

“I appreciated the opportunity today to join President Trump, Vice President Pence, Attorney General Barr, and law enforcement leaders for a productive and necessary conversation on strengthening the relationship between law enforcement and Black communities. 

Kentucky finds itself in the center of this conversation. Our Commonwealth and our nation stand at a crossroad, and our humanity beckons us to leave behind the status quo and move forward together toward change.

As Attorney General, it is incumbent on me to help lead this change, and today’s roundtable is a step in that direction. 

My elected position has given me the opportunity to witness first-hand the dedication of our law enforcement community in Kentucky.  Our men and women in uniform have a desire not only to serve and protect all our communities, but also understand them. I am hopeful that sentiment will help propel our Commonwealth forward in the days to come.

I am grateful for President Trump’s leadership on this issue and the opportunity today to join my law enforcement colleagues from across the country in being a part of the change.”
