Recently I sat down with a cop who shared with me some powerful stories and perspectives that he could NOT share with the world. Why? Because he’s still a police officer.
Today … law enforcement officers across America get a new warrior.
All across the country, police departments are suffering from declining morale.
They are being attacked on social media. In traditional media. Departmental policies have resulted in their having to take undeserved lumps and keep their mouths shut.
There are countless groups online that stand behind law enforcement. They are filled with officers and supporters. But when it comes to having a unified voice fighting for them … they’ve had to rely on unions and a “silent majority.”
Today, I’m honored to be appointed as the National Spokesman for Law Enforcement Today.
LET was started several years ago by an active police officer to give fellow law enforcement officers, their families, and supporters a place online that they could call “home.” It’s turned into a platform that reaches tens of millions of people a month.
I’ve been tapped for the position specifically because I am NOT bound by department policies … because I’m not a cop.
I’ll be working very closely with focus groups and leadership teams of active and retired law enforcement under the guidance of Law Enforcement Today to bring a powerful voice to the entire community. I’ll be offering a blue beacon of light to those who – because of department policies – can’t speak out in the mainstream media.
I’m not being paid to do this. I’m blessed to run a very successful marketing agency which means I can do this just because it’s the right thing to do.
Today, law enforcement becomes un-cuffed.
It’s a powerful opportunity to begin to counter the false stories and negative media coverage the community receives because of their silence and perceived guilt.
But this is just the beginning.
We’ve created a strategic partnership with some of the largest law enforcement support groups on social media, giving us a reach of more than 100 million people per month. This partnership includes not just Law Enforcement Today, but also Law Enforcement Daily, Law Enforcement For Life, LEO Life, First Responder Nation, Deputy Matt & Others Who Serve, Police Beat, The Rural Badge, Blue Line Alpha, Cops and Cabins, Inside The Fire: A Page For First Responders, Brothers in Uniform, Back The Badge and a number of others.
That’s not all. We plan on expanding our platform shortly and giving a greater – and protected – voice to those of you in law enforcement who have stories to share but need to protect your identity. A home to supporters who want to send messages of love and encouragement to those who hold the thin blue line. And a community for LEOs and veterans who have started businesses and support non-profits with those businesses … but need a place to tell the world.
It doesn’t end there. We are putting together a focus group of retired law enforcement officers and a cross-section of experts to offer critical guidance to the mainstream media about the issues that affect policing in America and to help craft standpoints and messaging for media appearances.
You all have stories. Share them with me. Let me share them with the world. Send them to me through here.
Enough of the anti-police rhetoric. Enough of the attacks on cops. It’s time that law enforcement has a friend … a voice … and others willing to stand behind the men and women who hold The Thin Blue Line.
I have one simple request – please, SHARE this announcement with EVERY member of law enforcement and every supporter you know. It’s time to rise.
The battle begins right here and right now.
I’ve got your six.
God bless America.
