It’s been a tough couple years for local law enforcement. Groups like Antifa and Black Lives Matter have inspired people to assassinate cops on the street. Soft on Crime groups are targeting record numbers of individual law enforcement officers in law suits for police brutality. And cops are facing increasing disrespect on the streets as criminals have become emboldened by the wave of anti-cop rhetoric in the news media and by many politicians.
Most law enforcement officers don’t do their job for the money. They do it because they’re committed to serving their communities and when they’re up against the kind of hostility they’ve faced for the last couple years it really takes its toll on morale.
All of this is why NPA has launched a nationwide effort to show our law enforcement officers that we appreciate their service and support their efforts to protect our families and our communities. Through our campaign we are collecting tens of thousands of “Pledge of Support Cards”, packing them up and sending them to police departments around the nation. If you haven’t signed and returned one of our Cards drop a handwritten note to your local police chief or sheriff. Tell them how much you appreciate their work and ask the Chief to post your note on the bulletin board.
Sometimes a little pat on the back can go a long way!
