Randy Sutton, a 33 year Law Enforcement veteran and the National Spokesman for THE AMERICAN COUNCIL ON PUBLIC SAFETY, posted a thoughtful piece about the consequences of undermining respect for police departments across the nation.

One thing Randy didn’t discuss but I think is necessary in the conversation is how the destruction of our police forces plays into the rise of terrorist cell strength and activity. We’ve invited Randy’s group to call in to Everyday Valor on Friday when we will be kicking off National Police Week with discussions on the success of community policing, the rule of law as the basis of peace, and the consequences of de-policing.
Drop your comments here, and we will try to address them on the show.
