Attention Members:

Yes, we are currently in the planning stages of a response to assist our brother and sister officers devastated by Hurricane Harvey in South Texas. Through our Texas members of the National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO) we have been kept updated throughout each day since the initial landfall. Since a vast majority of Texas remains unaffected by the storm the response and resources from Law Enforcement throughout Texas has been outstanding. But yes, we will be responding also when we have a clear picture of exactly what they will need. Right now, the law enforcement families that have been displaced need money and the quickest way to help is through the NAPO Relief Fund. I will personally assure you that 100% of any money donated will go to affected law enforcement members and their families. In the meantime keep them in your thoughts and prayers, especially HERO Sgt. Steve Perez who went to work Tuesday telling his wife “we got work to do”.

NAPO Relief Fund Letter

NAPO endorses the nomination of Senator Sessions to be the next United States Attorney General and stands ready to help his nomination in any way necessary. Senator Sessions has been a leading voice for law enforcement on many issues facing our community and has been strongly supportive of many of our legislative priorities. We look forward to working with him
in his new position as the nation’s “Top Cop.”

Please read the National Association of Police Organization's (NAPO) letter to condemn in the strongest possible terms the anti-police painting hung in a hallway in our nation’s Capitol.

NAPO's National President Michael McHale and Executive Director William Johnson issued the following statement in response to IACP President Terrence Cunningham's collective apology for American police:

"We are extremely disappointed to see such a poorly thought-out statement. NAPO stands for the notion of individual responsibility, not collective guilt.  Such appeasement of the violent anti-police movement is just one more nail in the coffin of American law enforcement.  The people who support American police officers aren't looking for an apology. And for the people who hate the police it won't make any difference."

I have the honor of representing our membership as Sergeant-at-Arms for the National Association of Police Organizations (NAPO).   I am passing along a NAPO chart comparing Presidential Candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton on issues that impact law enforcement and our families.  The comparison is a quick and worthwhile read for our membership as election season moves ahead.
