The National Police Association is a 501(C)3 non-profit organization, EIN 82-0647764, founded to educate supporters of law enforcement in how to help police departments accomplish their goals. The National Police Association is supported solely through the generous contributions of individuals and organizations. Donations are tax deductible.
When local officers and agencies are faced with litigation, intimidation and harassment from activists, those anti-police forces often receive assistance from a plethora of anti law enforcement groups. Groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Amnesty International, Black Lives Matter, the Center for Constitutional Rights, Cop Watch, Critical Resistance, the National Police Accountability Project (NPAP), the NAACP Legal Defense Fund, the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) and many, many others. And just as often as local officers and agencies are faced with opponents backed by the resources of national anti-police groups, there is no countervailing national pro-police organization to stand with the cops to educate the public as to the plight of the local officers and agencies. There is no countervailing national pro-police organization to join the lawsuit in defense of the the officer or agency. There is no countervailing national pro-police organization to shine a spotlight on anti-police legislation introduced at the state or local level. There is no countervailing national pro-police organization to organize boycotts of business that discriminate against police officers with acts such as banning off duty officers who, as required by their departments, carry off duty weapons, or restaurants that refuse service to uniform officers.
We believe in holding anti-police organizations, activist and politicians accountable for their actions.
If you are alarmed by the increasing anti-police protests, laws, and litigation attacking local law enforcement officers and agencies, please support us. Do it for your community, do it for the officers who put their lives on the line to protect us, and do it for your family.
