The National Police Association is a non-profit organization founded to educate the supporters of law enforcement in how they can help police departments accomplish their goals. The organization is solely supported through the contributions of other organizations and individuals.
The National Police Association is working to bring national and local attention to all of the positive services that are provided form the law enforcement providers at every turn, as well as to build public support for different actions through legal filings, articles authored by law enforcement experts, radio public service announcements as well as the NPA podcast.
With plenty of different individuals in the political system all around the country, including mayors, special interest activist, citizen review commissions, and many more, that are looking to oversee law enforcement, as their way to advance their own interests or the interest of their political allies, the NPA works against all of them by using the law.
Aside from education, the organization uses a combination of in-depth investigation, assertive legal filings, and clear communications in a way that it can advance the mission of combating the negative stereotypes surrounding law enforcement officials and holding them accountable. The NPA uses the law to highlight the abuses by various officials, change their behavior, and seek corrective actions.
The National Police Association also promotes different policies that can encourage the public officials to work with the local police in the public interest, instead of benefiting powerful special interests across the entire country. When there are specific cases of violence against an officer or where law enforcement officials have been obstructed or prevented from conducting their duties, the NPA offers rewards for those reports.
The organization also provides more real-time information to responding to police officers by developing private and public surveillance camera network partnerships. It also implemented the Project Safe Neighborhoods, a national initiative that increases the prosecution of violent organizations by the United States Department of Justice.
Additionally, the National Police Association provides different tools to local law enforcement, including legal back up by filing briefs, to preserve the legal methods that law enforcement officers need to do their jobs effectively.
The organization also educates the public on various police techniques, like proactive policing, to generate support from the community for the local law enforcement. This is a fundamental tool that the police require to do its job, and with the morale-boosting programs from the NPA, such as the NPA Thank You Program, law enforcement officials can do their jobs easily.
Finally, the National Police Association frequently informs the Courts about present issues in different cases regarding law enforcement officials, from the police’s perspective in these cases, as a way to look at the ramifications of those issues.
