Support Your Local Police and Keep Them IndependentPosted: October 17, 2011
Support Your Local Police and Keep Them Independent is our oldest and most successful campaign and we are RE-LAUNCHING it! We have been committed to this campaign since the mid-1960s. We were successful in stopping Police Civilian Review Boards in the 1960s and 70s and in getting the federal government’s Law Enforcement Assistance Administration abolished in 1982. Today, more than ever, we need grassroots activists to continue working to keep our local police under the supervision of local elected officials and free from state and federal control.
There has been a lot of work and dedication put into this campaign. Our amazing art director Joe, and graphic designer Billy, updated the logo for this campaign. They have designed some awesome bumper stickers, window clings, and banners for this campaign. Bill Jasper, senior editor and writer for The New American magazine, is making videos for the campaign. Headquarters has sent out information on this campaign to every police chief and sheriff in the nation, and soon people like Jim Fitzgerald, a former police officer from New Jersey and JBS Director of Field Staff, will be traveling the nation to speak to police everywhere.
