Stopped by Police

The BLEA exists to help law enforcement agencies to be sensitive to the needs and concerns of minorities, women, and the poor. This pamphlet is meant to provide you with information to help you determine if your rights have been violated by the police. You should not use this pamphlet as a legal document. If you feel your rights have been violated, you should seek legal counsel immediately.

As Black law enforcement professionals, we face this challenge every day. When an incident of questionable police shootings and police brutality happens in the communities we serve, we either know the victim, we know someone who knows them, or the victim is a family member. BLEA believes that there is a systemic pattern of bias that exists in the institutions of law enforcement. There have been many studies that concur on the issue of racial bias playing a factor in a law enforcement officer’s decision to shoot or not to shoot.

In our opinion and experience, the FOP has never been an organization that operated on behalf of African American Police Officers. This organization in the past has been anti-affirmation as well as opposed the promotion of African Americans in the police department as well as opposed to the very important policy of police officers living in the city they work. As Black Law Enforcement Professionals, we believe that residency is a major factor of accountability and is a core component in “Real Community Policing.”  READ MORE 



Do Black Lives Matter to the FOP? Black Members Do Not Actually Exist!

These assimilated brothers and sisters have - over the years - contributed hundreds of thousands - if not millions of dollars - to organizations like the FOP. The same FOP that works tirelessly to retard and abate the recruitment, hiring, training, assignments, and promotions of officers of color. Generally, bargaining agents have no love for its constituency. The driving force of these agents is to line their pockets, improve their assignments and to pretend that they embrace and value diversity.

I invite any of these coopted brothers and sisters to make inquiries of the FOP locally, nationally, and internationally to determine the scope and the depth of the FOP's diversity in positional, executive, programmatic, legislative, and policy-making tiers.  READ MORE
