Charlotte Mecklenburg FOP Lodge #9 this week sent an email asking for input from Charlotte Officers that could be provided to the national board and in particular the president of FOP National Pat Yoes.
President Yoes request as follows:
I am seeking your feedback on the items listed below.
We have a growing concern about state and local appointed and elected officials impeding the enforcement of law and eroding the ability of law enforcement officers to keep their communities safe.
The problem areas include, but are not limited to, the following:
Refusal to prosecute statutes not to their liking.
Criticizing law enforcement officers in the media over individual incidents or confrontations without regard for the facts or the status of ongoing investigations.
Creating a climate of fear in police management nationwide which makes them less willing to defend and support the officers they’re supposed to be leading and commanding.
The consequences of these activities include:
A reduction in public safety in growing areas in the U.S.
Erosion of respect for and cooperation with police officers nationwide - increased difficulty in police recruiting, higher attrition rates, and earlier retirement of seasoned officers.
I strongly believe that we need to sit down and compare experiences in this area with the goal of developing counter strategies to get the public behind us, curb the anti-police rhetoric, and reestablish respect for the rule of law.
