On April 23, 2018, State Senator Julian Cyr, along with the entire Cape and Islands delegation, sent a letter to the Chairs of the Joint Committee on the Judiciary and the Chairs of the Joint Committee on Public Safety and Homeland Security, in follow up to the murder of Sargent Sean Gannon.
"We owe it to Sergeant Gannon, his family, and the Yarmouth Police Department to take a hard look at what happened, particularly at the Trial Court, witness protection programs, and probation departments. We need to see if there are lessons to be learned from this tragic loss. The Cape & Islands legislative delegation is united in this. It’s about getting answers to help our community heal" Senator Cyr said.
