Blacks In Law Enforcement of America

blealogo   Blacks in Law Enforcement of America (BLEA) recognize the rich history of the African American law enforcement professional who fought for our survival and 120 years later, we now have black commissioners and chiefs in law enforcement. We will never forget the shoulders that we stand on, because we did not get here on our own. Blacks in Law Enforcement of America recognize that true policing is “extended,” meaning that the existence of BLEA will not only focus on the policy and procedures of the institution of law enforcement. BLEA will also focus on outside institutions like education, economic development, and employment that can contribute to the crime, safety, and security of the communities we serve. Blacks in Law enforcement will continue to express “ Black” as it refers to people of color that are law enforcement professionals. The emphasis is on the common experience and determination of the people of African, Afro-Caribbean and Asian origin that opposes the effects of the policies and procedures in the history of our Justice System, that are based on racial bias and disproportionality.

Wendell Griffen Chastises City of Little Rock’s Black Leaders On Police Residency Requirement Vote

“Yes, black people can be enablers and defenders of “deeply racist” thinking and policy-making.”   Judge Wendell Griffen is calling some of Little Rock’s most prominent black leaders “enablers” of a “deeply racist” system following a failed vote to require police officers to live in the city they have pledged to protect. The Little Rock […]

Black Law Enforcement Supports 49’s Quarterback, Colin Kaepernick

 

colin-kaepernick-x-cap-759x500

As a national organization of Black Law Enforcement Professionals, we are in full support of 49’s Quarterback, Colin Kaepernick.

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.

Blacks In Law Enforcement of America believes that Law Enforcements’ purpose is to protect and serve. Not to contain the poor, the economically disadvantaged or to take advantage of those who cannot fight back or have a real voice in the matter at hand.

At any given day a Black Police Officer's family member could be a victim of the same issues that Mr. Kaepernick is courageously taking a stand against. At any given day without our uniform on, the Black Officer can be a victim or the same situations that Mr. Kaepernick has eloquently stated in several interviews.

As a national organization of Black Law Enforcement Professionals, we recognize that there are four degrees of separation from Black Law Enforcement and the Black community when it comes to "Police Criminality". We know the victim, we know someone who knows the victim, the victim is a family member, or we are the victims.

Black Law Enforcement Officers should no longer permit ourselves to be relegated to the role of brutal pawns of a system of policing that has terrorized our birth communities for decades.

We are mothers, fathers, husbands, wives, brothers, sisters, neighbors, and members of the black community. Donning the blue uniform should not change this.

On the contrary, it should sharpen our perception of our responsibilities as Black men and women in a society that are seemingly unresponsive to the needs of Black people.

To this end, we are in full Colin Kaepernick and any other NFL player that uses their status to advance the need for Justice for Black people throughout America.
