Senator Brandon Creighton today released this statement before the Prayer for Police event in Conroe tonight.

“I want to extend my deepest sympathies and condolences to the family of Sheriff Deputy Darren Goforth. Please join me in prayer, asking God to comfort Goforth’s family and to keep our first responders safe.”

“Goforth’s senseless murder is a sad example of a moral crisis in America. And I know our community will be an example that leads our country back. While our country mourns Deputy Goforth with us, we need to demonstrate courage and put our faith in God. His justice and grace can bring us out of this crisis. We can lead by standing with law enforcement. And we can lead by saying that all lives matter.”

Deputy Goforth was a 10-year veteran of the force and leaves behind a wife and two children, ages 5 and 12. To make a donation to Officer Goforth’s family please click this link: gofundme.com/dgoforth
