NACOLE President, Brian Corr, Responds to President Trump's Recent Comments to Law Enforcement

"NACOLE stands with communities, civil rights activists, and police across the United States in condemning the remarks of President Trump on July 28, 2017 that encouraged law enforcement to use excessive force. Not only is it legally and morally wrong, it is never justified and always counterproductive to violate the rights and dignity of any person in the name of law and order. Indeed, commitment to the rule of law means adherence to policies, procedures, laws, and the U.S. Constitution in all circumstances. The concepts of community policing, procedural justice, and legitimacy demand that all persons are treated fairly and with respect at all times."
