Why'd You Stop Me? with Jason Lehman [PART 2]

Show Notes

“Why’d you stop me?” This is one of the most frequently asked questions people have when stopped by the police. There is a violent confrontation between the police and a community member EVERY hour in our country.

This violence often stems from a lack of understanding and mistrust for the police. It is crucial that we educate our future leaders in the community about policing in order to promote positive interactions between community members and the police.

On this episode of the Blue View, National FOP President Patrick Yoes sits down with retired Long Beach Police Department Sgt. Jason Lehman, who's mission it is to reduce violence between peace officers and the community through the training provided by his organization Why'd You Stop Me? (WYSM)

The National FOP endorsed Jason’s training organization, which aims to increase transparency in policing in an effort to eliminate these acts of violence. The organization’s mission is to provide empowerment training to both police officers and the public to improve legitimacy and reduce acts of violence during encounters.

In Part 1 of their conversation, National President Patrick Yoes and WYSM Founder Jason Lehman discuss Jason’s background and the eye-opening encounter that he had in a classroom that led him to found the organization. Later, they discuss the new ways in which policing relationships are formed and Jason’s thoughts on the future of law enforcement.

In Part 2 of their conversation, National President Patrick Yoes and WYSM Founder Jason Lehman discuss the future of law enforcement, and Jason gives some advice to both current law enforcement officers and the communities in which they serve.

Police Week 2022: It's All About the White Chairs

This is the story of the families of our fallen law enforcement heroes. We must never let them walk alone. Each one of those “white chairs” represents a hero that has fallen, and equally as important, heroes who must carry on. Their lives have been forever changed and through the efforts of so many, they know they are not alone, for we never forget our fallen and the contribution they and their families have made and will continue to make. As long as there is a need for “white chairs” to be set up on the lawn of our Nation’s Capital on May 15th to remember and honor our fallen, our work is not done. Never should we lose sight of the reason we do what we must all do—which is to remember and honor. Take pride in your efforts, for the Fraternal Order of Police National Peace Officers’ Memorial Service doesn’t just happen; it evolves out of our respect and admiration for those who gave far more than we have. We must never let them walk alone! ⬛️ ⬛️ ⬛️  SUBSCRIBE TO THE BLUE VIEW PODCAST Blue View Podcast ➡️ https://blue-view.castos.com/ Apple Podcasts ➡️ https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/blue-view-by-the-fraternal-order-of-police-fop/id1609211746 Spotify ➡️ https://open.spotify.com/show/3OZzhTEcwf3e2y0sPqdsew Amazon ➡️ https://music.amazon.com/podcasts/aad56de4-4a9a-46d2-a71f-ba46ea487797/blue-view-by-the-fraternal-order-of-police-fop  ...

What's Next for America's Law Enforcement Officers? | Jim Pasco

The National Fraternal Order of Police spent all of last year working cooperatively with key Members of Congress to develop meaningful criminal justice and police reform. Our efforts were focused on the need for absolute protection of officers’ due process rights and strictly adherence to the “objectively reasonable” standard for use of force. These efforts could not overcome the political headwinds in Congress and now, potential Executive action is being contemplated amidst the background of a national spike in violent crime and violence targeting law enforcement officers. Today we will hear from National Fraternal Order of Police Executive Director Jim Pasco about what is being done in Washington, DC to reform policing so that the partnership between our communities and the officers that protect them can be restored.
