Policing, Politics, and Preparing for National Police Week

April 2, 2024, marks the beginning of a 40-day countdown to National Police Week (May 12-18, 2024), offering a prime opportunity for a compelling interview with Michael Letts. Letts, a dedicated police officer and the founder of InVest USA, has spearheaded the initiative to provide bulletproof vests to police departments, especially those affected by budget cuts triggered by the Defund the Police movement. At a time when political narratives often cloud the real needs of the law enforcement community, Letts offers an informed, grounded perspective on the intersection of policing and politics.

Key Discussion Points:

Evaluating Biden’s Stance: We’ll critically examine rhetoric vs. reality of President Biden and other Democrat leaders for regarding police.

The Funding Controversy: The conversation will delve into the consequences of the Defund the Police movement’s influence on police funding, emphasizing Biden’s proposed redirecting of funds from police departments to social services, mental health counseling and affordable housing, per CNN’s Fact Check.  Officer Letts will discuss how such funding shifts impacts the effectiveness, safety and moral of police departments.  

The Mission of InVest USA Amidst Defunding: Highlighting InVest USA’s crucial role in supporting police departments stripped of resources, Letts will illustrate the organization’s response to the challenges posed by the Defund the Police movement. This discussion will underscore the ongoing need for robust support for law enforcement from both the community and broader societal institutions.

Scrutinizing the Political Narrative: Letts will address the political discourse surrounding the Defund the Police movement that allows political cover to Biden to appear as the ‘good cop’ while advancing the Defunding movement through other groups who play the role of ‘bad cops’ in the movement. He will provide insight into how these dynamics influence public perception and policymaking, impacting law enforcement on the frontline.

The Significance of National Police Week: With the 40-day countdown now underway, Letts will articulate the importance of National Police Week in today’s social and political context. He will share plans for how InVest USA intends to honor and support law enforcement during this pivotal time.
