4 ex-Memphis police officers charged with Tyre Nichols’ murder have been decertified


This combination of images provided by the Memphis Police Department shows (from left) former police officers Demetrius Haley, Emmitt Martin III, Desmond Mills Jr. and Justin Smith. A Tennessee commission voted to decertify Haley, Martin and Smith. Mills surrendered his certification.

Decertification hearings for others investigated in his death are pending. Decertification prevents officers from going to work in the same jurisdiction. They can still get police jobs out of state.
