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.
logounbalanced1-e1420223168887 BLEA are active members of The Grand Council of Guardians Inc.  The Grand Council of Guardians is an umbrella organization that consists of African Americans in the field of Law Enforcement, Uniform and Civilians throughout New York State.

  • 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

Pat Lynch; Are Police Brutality Victims NOT Real New Yorkers?

Patrick Lynch, head of the PBA speaks at a news conference in support of the  police officers indicted in a ticket-fixing scandal  at the Bronx Supreme Court Friday, Oct.  28,  2011 in New York.  In total, 16 officers were arraigned in a packed courtroom. The halls were swarmed with people, and hundreds of officers carrying signs stood outside the courthouse and applauded as the accused officers walked through.   (AP Photo/David Karp)   As a national organization of Black Law Enforcement Professionals we also denounce PBA President Lynch for continuous rhetoric to a Mayor that was elected with over 70% of his total vote coming from people of color and used his position as Mayor to voice their concerns. 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
