Tyre Nichols finalBEAUFORT, S.C. (Feb. 17, 2023) – The City of Beaufort will host an event – Tyre Nichols and Our Commitment to Responsible Public Safety – at Henry C. Chambers Waterfront Park pavilion at 2 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 25.

Welcome: Mayor Stephen Murray, City of Beaufort

Comments: Other local government officials
