Our History

Our History

Too often, the men and women of law enforcement become victims of the very justice system they are sworn to defend. Through a combination of legislative and grassroots advocacy, our mission is to promote policies that protect our law enforcement officers’ personal and professional safety, and to fight against policies that favor criminals at the expense of the police and the public.

Our sister organization, the Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund, has, for more than two decades, provided direct assistance to officers unfairly targeted by politically-motivated or misguided criminal charges and lawsuits.

In 2013, we launched LEAN – the Law Enforcement Action Network – to demand action on the issues that are keeping our men and women in uniform from doing their job of protecting American citizens.
