April 2020 News Roundup

News Roundup - National Police Support Fund

Our officers have faced a lot this month. They continue to protect and serve our communities- even in the midst of a pandemic. There are nationwide shortages of PPE and other protective equipment, putting them at greater risk of being infected and infecting others. We lost officers this month, including Bre Leath, a young mother and officer in Indianapolis. Officers are getting ambushed both on and off duty. Laws are rapidly changing, and officers have been caught in the middle of political battles about stay-at-home orders and bail reform. And through all of this, we are still seeing story after story of officers preparing meals, spreading cheer, doing virtual story hours, and more. They are true heroes, and this is more clear than ever before.

Contact your representatives and demand officers receive the protective gear and equipment they need to protect themselves (and their families) against the coronavirus. Stay up-to-date on your local news- many law enforcement agencies are facing budget cuts even as calls and needs increase.
