  • Blacks in Law Enforcement of America Recommendations on Legislation Change for Police Oversight and Accountability

    It is our duty as peace officers and members of Blacks in Law Enforcement of America to continue the fight for freedom, justice, and equality for all citizens. We will be advocates of Law Enforcement Professionals by establishing continuous training and support. As Black Law Enforcement Professionals, we pledge our time, honor, and talent for the uplifting of our communities. We are truly the leaders of the community, in and out of our blue uniform.

    The country has come into a state of independent oversight and accountability. There is a cry for oversight and accountability for big businesses such as Wall Street, the mortgage industry and even the automotive industry.

    If our voices, when united, can be heard to affect change and demand accountability from our government leaders corporate institutions, then we must voice our outrage when there is no true oversight of our local law enforcement departments that are paid by our tax dollars to properly protect and serve our families?

    As a national organization of Black Law Enforcement Professionals we recognize the need for oversight of policy and procedure and accountability of law enforcement when it come to “Use of Force” policies and legislation. read here

Mr. Lynch, the Mayors concerns are the same concerns of many families that voted him into office that fear their children having encounters with police that you claim you represent. Are these people not “Real New Yorkers”? read more
