1. KEEP POLICE OFFICERS SAFE
The rise of the anti-police movement in the United States has put America’s police officers in even greater danger of violence. That is why NPSF is dedicated to promoting common-sense ideas at the highest levels of our government that provide for officer safety. These common-sense solutions include:
- Provide the resources necessary for police departments to defend against terrorist attacks
- Body armor for police in high crime neighborhoods
- Expand anti-terrorism training
- Expand intelligence gathering and social media monitoring on groups that promote violence against police
2. ENGAGE THE PUBLIC ON ISSUES AFFECTING THE LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMUNITY
Recently there has been a swift and steady rise in anti-police rhetoric in the United States. Too often, those who perpetuate anti-cop sentiment are misinformed, or altogether uninformed of the ever-present and unpredictable dangers that our police officers face on a daily basis. That is why educating the public on the challenges facing America’s police officers is critical in accomplishing our main mission which is to promote a public understanding of the challenges, risks and dangers facing the men and women of our nation’s law enforcement community. Through public education of the police profession, NPSF seeks to promote more harmonious relationships between police officers and the communities they serve.
3. COORDINATE WITH POLITICIANS ON ISSUES AFFECTING THE LAW ENFORCEMENT COMMUNITIES
America’s police officers require representatives in government that understand and sympathize with the challenges of their high-risk profession. NPSF strives to create and promote a general understanding of the police profession in Washington D.C. so that government leaders of good will can come together and address the ever-evolving needs of America’s law enforcement community.
4. EXPOSE POLITICIANS WHO EXPLOIT POLICE FOR POLITICAL PURPOSES
Although the overarching goal of NPSF is to expand public understanding of of the police community and advocate for officer safety, we must also expose those in our government who promote tensions between their constituents and local law enforcement. Too often, the rhetoric used by politicians in Washington inflames tensions between police and the communities they serve, and recently we have seen how this tension can snap into violence and chaos. NPSF is dedicated to exposing politicians who stir civil unrest in their constituencies for political purposes. These opportunistic politicians must be exposed and NPSF is dedicated to doing so for the sake of the safety and well-being of America’s police officers.
