As crime rates continue to rise across the country, the violence directed at law enforcement officers is skyrocketing. In just the first month of 2022, we saw the real-life consequences of and felt the immense pain caused by the recent surge in violent crime and the heinous acts of cowardly individuals whose sole motivation was to injure or kill a law enforcement officer.
This past year was one of the most dangerous years for law enforcement in recent history due to the increase of violence directed towards law enforcement officers, the nationwide crime crisis fueled by rogue prosecutors, and the ongoing pandemic.
Today, National FOP President Patrick Yoes sits down with National Vice President Joe Gamaldi and National Treasurer James Smallwood to discuss the alarming increase in violence against the police as well as the consequences of the continued demonization of our law enforcement officers.
