For several months the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP) and the Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) have been engaged in extensive discussions with the Biden Administration in good faith to develop his Executive Order on Advancing Effective, Accountable Policing and Criminal Justice Practices to Enhance Public Trust and Public Safety.
We applaud the Administration for listening to our constructive feedback and incorporating our suggestions into the Executive Order. Our organizations, which represent our nation’s chiefs and the majority of rank-and-file officers, believe that it marks a significant step in our continuing efforts to strengthen the trust between the public, the police and the criminal justice system.
During our discussions, the IACP and FOP remained focused on communicating the challenges facing the law enforcement profession. We made it clear that our profession is comprised of dedicated individuals who are committed to the preservation of human life, maintaining the highest ethical standards, and treating all individuals with dignity and respect, while holding themselves and others accountable.
Many state and local police agencies across the county have taken the lead in efforts to make our communities safer, modernize policing practices, and make our broader criminal justice system more effective and more equitable. To that end, we stressed the need for support for proven training, agency accreditation, data collection initiatives that incorporates due process, and more uniform policies based on evidenced-based leading practices.
On this episode of the Blue View, National President Patrick Yoes sits down with Jim Pasco, Executive Director of the National Fraternal Order of Police, to talk about the FOP’s discussions with the Administration and how the FOP helped shape the final Executive Order.
