A Message to the Media

Until recently we have valued certain media relationships.  That value in our media relations has all but vanaished.  And it will take a lot to change that.  The way the news media as whole has shifted its agenda in recent months to portraying our profession as something it is not has strained our relationship with even those who have earned a level of trust with us.

Fairness? Objectivity? Truth? All Victims of Current Media Standards

With the Ferguson incident capturing the nation's attention there has been much justifiable anger expressed about the way this event is being reported.

Across the country special interest groups are using Public Employees as scapegoats for the financial problems caused by politicians. These politicians are endangering the public in order to further their own agenda to silence public employee unions and gut public services. The safety of every citizen of the United States is threatened as Public Safety jobs are eliminated and the services and protections that these departments offer the public are scaled back to the bare bones. We cannot continue to allow the politicians that we entrust to run our government destroy the safety of our communities.

In order to arm you with the facts of what is happening to our country, The National Fraternal Order of Police has created a website as a place to share news of what these groups are doing to harm our public employees and the safety of our communities. Click on the poster above to see what is happening in your state and what you can do to help in this fight to Save Public Safety.
