About National Center for Police Defense, Inc.
Law enforcement is the first line of defense helping to keep the bad guys at bay. I heard a quote recently from a disenfranchised cop, at a police gathering, speaking to clergy, “Where is God when all these horrors occur, he’s not ever there, and that’s why I don’t believe.” The Clergyman retorted, “Do you see all these men and women here who put their lives on the line every day for people they don’t know, that’s where God is, in their hearts, they are his messengers, even if they don’t know it, they are God and God is them.” Cops risk their lives because something inside drives them to want to help their communities.
However, in society today these sacrifices are not respected and police officers are suffering in an indifferent, or downright hostile, society. When a police officer receives a call in this day and age, it is with the knowledge that he is no longer respected by the community or by the system that he swore an oath to protect and serve. These are not his friends and neighbors. Those he endeavors to help may be waiting in ambush for him. He is just a pawn in the game and continually at the mercy of the government. He knows each and every day when he leaves home that there is someone out there who wants to kill him, just because he wears a badge. When he puts that badge on he becomes a target; a target for groups that have sworn to assassinate Police Officers, and also a target for the system that he has sworn an oath to protect and serve.
The National Center for Police Defense, Inc. (NCPD), is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping law enforcement officers in their time of need after an on-duty catastrophe, either through providing support and resources during a legal process or during sick leave due to a severe injury.
The mission of the National Center for Police Defense is to help police officers who do their job the way they were trained and then the system that they protect and serve finds them guilty of a crime for doing their job the way they were trained to do it.
National Center for Police Defense, Inc. is the only organization that helps protect officers from the very system that they have sworn to protect and serve when the system turns against them.
The vision of National Center for Police Defense is to create a safety net that provides support and resources for police officers so they never feel alone in their time of crisis.
