Billboards declaring “No Police, No Peace” went up in major U.S. cities on Monday encouraging Americans to register their support for law enforcement by signing Heritage Action for America’s “Police Pledge.”
Heritage Action Executive Director Jessica Anderson appeared on “Fox & Friends” to explain why the group has posted “No Police, No Peace” billboards in U.S. cities, such as New York City’s Times Square:
“Americans want safety and security, and so we are rolling out these billboards today with a very simple message: ‘No police, no peace.’ We know, like many millions of Americans across the country, that the only chance this country has for safety and security is with a strong law enforcement.
“So, we wanted to put these billboards in places like Times Square, Dallas, Atlanta, Georgia to really send the message that millions of Americans do ‘Back the Blue,’ do support law enforcement and want to encourage our elected officials, our politicians, our pundits to be strong in their support for law enforcement – to push back against the violence, to push back against the anarchy, and to do it in a way that provides safety and security in a meaningful way at the local level.
“And, that’s also why the billboards push our police pledge, which has hundreds of elected officials already on board, committed to not allow any bill, resolution or movement which would defund the police.”
Americans who support the police and don’t want them defunded can either text “Police” to 51776 or visit www.PolicePledge.com to sign the following “Police Pledge”:
The Police Pledge: For Citizens
A lawful society—free from mob rule and violent insurrection—is not possible without Law Enforcement.
Police Officers have chosen a noble profession. They dedicate their lives to upholding the law and protecting the sacred rights of their fellow citizens. As a profession, they deserve support and respect.
I stand with America’s Police and pledge to oppose any bill, resolution, or movement to “Defund the Police.”
