Never has it been as important as now to have our voices heard. This
not only ensures the safety and betterment of our law enforcement
officers, but most importantly that of the communities we serve. We have made a
concentrated effort to improve our community and media relations efforts to allow the FOP
a stronger share of voice and for a more transparent and accurate depiction of who we
are as an organization, and of who we are as law enforcement officers. The objective is to
help our FOP State and Local leaders either enhance or develop community and media
relations efforts in a unified manner.
“Keeping Resilience Front and Center”
The law enforcement profession brings with it inherent
stressors from the expected day-to-day activities. Never
before have we seen the challenges that we are facing today. That's why it is more
important now than ever to make sure we are keeping resilience front and center in
our lives. Tune in as National FOP President Patrick Yoes and National FOP Wellness
Director Sherri Martin discuss the many resources available to law enforcement
officers to maintain wellness and resiliency in the field and beyond.

The National FOP is continuously working to improve how we communicate and
looking for new ways to better ourselves for our members and the communities we
serve. While we believe that we are stronger when we unify our message and when
speaking with one voice, we also believe that communication and outreach
decisions are best made by our leaders at the State and Local Lodge levels. No one
knows their communities better than those that serve and protect at the local level.
The National FOP is approaching the perception challenges we all face by providing tools that will elevate and
unify our communication, better our relations with the communities we serve, and have a positive impact on
police reform. Watch this video and review the linked document and let's speak with one voice as we light a
path forward.

With so many of our Local and State Lodges seeking guidance

Legal Counsel, Larry James, at the direction of President Yoes, headed up a civilian
review task force to develop a standardized model policy to provide a roadmap for
those lodges to navigate this challenging position. Tune in as President Yoes and

In these challenging times, we are seeing more attacks on the
law enforcement profession than ever before. Many of them are
absent fact and reason. One of those attacks is the removal of qualified immunity for
those who selflessly serve their communities. Tune in as President Yoes and Legal
Counsel Larry James discuss the details of qualified immunity and present the facts
that are not often discussed in the media so we can all have a better understanding
of how qualified immunity does absolutely nothing to protect bad cops! Resource
documents mentioned in the video can be found in the NFOP app under the
Resources tab.
