Our world is changing at a rapid pace, a pace that is accelerating on a daily basis. The result of this exaggerated pace has caused us to become desensitized to violence, gore, all forms of abuse and even death. Therefore, we are developing an extreme malevolence toward life as we once knew it. Every day the press bombards us with horror, beheadings, crucifixions, child dismemberments, rapes, and other heinous acts of cruelty.
Our only defense against these abuses in our home towns are the Police (law enforcement officers), local, State, and Federal, who are out there 24/7 doing their job to Protect and Serve. Yes, 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 don’t do the job for high pay, recognition, or glory, they do if because something inside drives them to want to help their communities.
In today’s society when a police officer receives a call, he knows, 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.
Law Enforcement is viewed as an extension of the Executive Branch of Government. It becomes very difficult to do your job when the Executive of that Branch doesn’t acknowledge that your life is worth as much as the street thug who tries to kill you with your own weapon.
The National Center for Police Defense, Inc. (NCPD), is dedicated to helping law enforcement officers in their time of need. Helping with the legal process when they do their job and are rewarded with a grand jury hearing that could lead to a possible indictment, or are severely injured and out on sick leave and need financial or legal assistance until they are back on their feet. NCPD isn’t only about legal defense for Law Enforcement. NCPD is about help! “NCPD is the only organization that helps protect you from the system that you protect and serve, at your time of crisis.”
